Sure, I can help.

Let me get off work.

In the meantime, download it. The usual, as root:

apt update
apt install sendemail

(or sudo if it works for you as user repeater).

I'll send you my configuration file for regular smtp
email. It should work on gmail, somehow, not sure I have
one setup. Google has tons info on sendemail.

Re: Trying to install ssmtp on Debian

It is NOT a typo. Sendmail is the old time user agent. Sendemail is a
lightweight, scriptable. Just pipe what you want into sendemail and
it will send it out via email.

Been using it for years. Can handle TLS, etc if you want. It is dead
easy when using plain smtp servers on port 25.

It is how my computers send me emails about events in there.

 SendEmail is a lightweight, completely command line based, SMTP email
 agent. It was designed to be used in bash scripts, Perl programs, and
 web sites, but it is also quite useful in many other contexts.
 .
 SendEmail is written in Perl and is unique in that it
 requires no special modules. It has a straight forward interface,
 making it very easy to use.
Looks neat... However also looks like you have to provide 100% of the configuration as command-line args, unless I'm mistaken?
One of the advantages of ssmtp is you can put the static config like users, passwords, servers, ports, domain names, auth mechanisms into a fairly short /etc/ssmtp/ssmtp.conf and then all other calls are pretty much just "ssmtp user@domain.fict < email.txt"
I guess you could always write a wrapper for sendemail that sets most of them though? Perhaps...

Please send a table of what is decoded when you press what key.. 

Pressed / See

1 / 1
2 / 3
3 / 3
4 / 5
5 / 5
.
.

Looks like there is a bit "stuck". This usually points to a cabling issue or issue with the parallel port/ GPIO.
