What is Balsa using as an smtp transport these days, Brian Stafford used to maintain libesmtp but his site, seems to be dead.

As a user, it seems to me that balsa doesn't include or specify a specific smtp transport. I've been using ssmtp, and the Gentoo link to source is .

Balsa still links to libesmtp:

$ ldd `which balsa` | grep smtp => /lib64/ (0x00007fc927cee000)

Pawel has worked on fixing at least one security issue since Brian went out of sight.


Interesting. Perhaps not really relevant, but Gentoo distinguishes separate packages for - esmtp ( which does indicate no longer maintained, and - libesmtp ( I can't get any connection to the site
