Default ssmtp logs?

Hello all have been trying to figure out how to use ssmtp as i need to get email off my system

Linux huang 2.6.25-gentoo-r8 #1 SMP Sun Oct 19 06:11:05 Local time zone must be set--see zic i686 AMD Athlon(tm) processor AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux.

Seems there is no mail command must be a package i need to emerge or something. I am running a program that needs to send email and it seems to be doing alright here is its output in /var/log/messages

10/21/08 18:53:37.211088 zmfilter[13976].INF [Creating notification email]
10/21/08 18:53:37.212328 zmfilter[13976].INF [Sending notification email 'ZoneMinder: Alarm - New-184 (255 - 255 39)']
10/21/08 18:53:37.224119 zmfilter[13976].INF [Notification email sent]

However there is no mail log to be found on my system and nothing from ssmtp seems to be showing up in the messages log.

Thank you in advance

ssmtp is a sendmail replacement. Therefore you would use something like:

sendmail adressee@domain.com < file.txt

Or you could emerge mailx, which gives you the mail command. That
sends via ssmtp but give more options than using ssmtp directly.

It might look like I'm doing nothing, but at the cellular level I'm
really quite busy.
