Is should be possible to write a wrapper script/program that understands the
sendmail-type interface and then calls ssmtp, or any other program.

IIRC, I believe nmh uses sendmail for other options, like address checks.
For example, when you do 'whom' at the "What now?" prompt, the addresses
are checked against sendmail (-bv).  This detail may not matter in your case.

I looked a long time back for some simple smtp submission clients that
support TLS connections, and it looks like they finally exist.  When
I get time, and if someone does not write one, I will try to work on a
wrapper that works with nmh and calls msmtp.

I'd like to be able to use gmail's tls smtp servers for sending outgoing
mail, but nmh does not support tls/ssl.
