[ic] Interchange and sendmail

Perhaps someone can enlighten me.  I'm running interchange 4.9.9 on an AMD 
opteron using Gentoo Linux.  The system is running Apache/2.0.48 
(Gentoo/Linux) mod_perl/1.99_10 Perl/v5.8.2 mod_ssl/2.0.48 OpenSSL/0.9.7c.  
Due to some problems compiling sendmail in pure 64bit mode (I have no 32 
bit libs on this system), I'm using ssmtp instead of sendmail.  

/usr/lib/sendmail and /usr/sbin/sendmail is smybolically linked to 
/usr/sbin/ssmtp.  Now here's where it gets interesting.  When the customer 
places an order, the order copy gets sent to the customer as expected but 
the encrypted copy of the order appears in the interchange error log with 
the following message: rDMWEXi2: - [04/December/2003:17:42:05 -0500] 
cart /cgi-bin/cart/process.html Unable to send mail using 
> To: webuser
> Subject: ORDER 0014
> Reply-To: doug1 at linux2go.org
>....rest of encrypted e-mail.

Now before I go do something silly that I'll reget in the future (such as 
parsing the error log for e-mail and re-sending it), are there any hard 
dependency requirements that require sendmail?  I find it interesting that 
interchange has no problems using ssmtp to send the customer copy but 
obviously does something different for encrypted version.

Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.
