ssmtp says cannot open mailhub:25, but I have 465 set as port...

I opened a yahoo account to try out ssmtp, and I used the normal (not Plus) settings here.

Despite this being my input into /etc/ssmtp/ssmtp.conf, however, an error message always comes saying ssmtp: cannot open mailhub:25

Is your user a member of the mail group, and if so, did you log out and back in again after adding the user account to that group?
