I’m running Gentoo Linux and the default MTA is SSMTP.
I found out that php was unable to use the linux MTA ssmtp to send email because of permission issue.

after a lot of digging in the Magento forums I decided to try a simple php mail() script which failed
then I saw “sh: /usr/sbin/ssmtp: Permission denied” in apache’s error_log

I then added apache user to the ssmtp group and then it worked…

Hope this helps someone.
