You dont necessary need the SSMTP module.

I think this is a bad configuration with your local environment. For testing purpose you should consider using Gmail.

Debian/Ubuntu users can Install with this command or click here to open up apt:

sudo apt-get install ssmtp

We need to then need to edit, ‘/etc/ssmtp/ssmtp.conf’:

[email protected] mailhub=smtp.gmail.com:587 rewriteDomain= [email protected] UseSTARTTLS=YES AuthUser=username AuthPass=password FromLineOverride=YES

Then add each account that you want to be able to send mail from by editing, ‘/etc/ssmtp/revaliases‘:

root:[email protected]:smtp.gmail.com:587
localusername:[email protected]:smtp.gmail.com:587

If you do not want to used Gmail here is another tutorial with an alternative Sendgrid.
