ssmtp is not a local email server it's a redirector.

the less that gets done here the better.

can you arrange for the command to call an external command - the faster
this gets done in the least amount of time the better.

(there's no need to use a complicated advanced rust mail library:
get the information out as fast as possible and let *another*
external command do that job, this provides flexibility)
