The one uses the [email ...] tag, the other the old
Vend::Util::send_mail. I have never heard of IC having problems, and it
has used a lot of mailers. My guess is there is some problem in ssmtp
with the -t option. Did you look in /var/log/maillog? There should
be something there.
I would switch to Net::SMTP or fake the order report with [email ...] --
I wouldn't parse logs. 8-)
