This is my ssmtp.conf:

I probably should have included a tail of my /var/log/maillog file:

  Jan 16 00:08:00 laptop sSMTP[6976]: Unable to connect to \
"mail.domain.org" port 25.
  Jan 16 00:08:00 laptop sSMTP[6976]: Cannot open mail.domain.org:25

As with the previous message, the server name and local hostname have been
sanitized thus:

"laptop" is the local machine using ssmtp
"domain" is the domain of the email address and SMTP server

This might give you a clue:

smtp             25/tcp    mail         #Simple Mail Transfer
smtp             25/udp    mail         #Simple Mail Transfer
smtps           465/tcp    #smtp protocol over TLS/SSL (was ssmtp)
smtps           465/udp    #smtp protocol over TLS/SSL (was ssmtp)

Unless you've configured your MTA in a non-standard way, smtps is on port 465 not 25.
