If you're going for 2GiB, then 1024*2048 seems correct.

I see -- thanks! (I'd upvote your answer, but serverfault won't let me at this point.)

comment Is it safe to make ssmtp SUID root?
I know what the article says (I wasn't claiming that it recommends SUID root), and I did see the "FreeBSD" in the title too -- it's kinda hard to miss. ;-) I also know it's generally better practice to use an unprivileged special user account, but my question is: Has ssmtp been written so that it's safe (barring security holes) to make it SUID root (like sendmail for instance)?
