No; before I switched back to "Gnus/5.11 (Gnus v5.11) Emacs/22.3
(windows-nt)," I was using the updated "Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/23.1
(windows-nt)" (which I could not get to work correctly in sending e-mail
messages via SMTP with GnuTLS enabled).

As for "mailer-app" and "mailer-app-args," I'm not sure what they are,
either; all that I know is that one of the error messages that
/usr/sbin/ssmtp.exe in "Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/23.1 (windows-nt)"
returned when trying to send an e-mail message via SMTP was the

Accordingly, when I searched with Google using the search phrase
"+"mailer-app-args"", I discovered the related page "[#FSCORE-158]
mailer-app-args assumes "-t" if set to a blank string "" - FreeSWITCH
Jira" (see;jsessionid=5E61B29048C44E4C670D5297069CE0CE?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels%3Aworklog-tabpanel),
with the following apparently relevant information:

Other than passing a space character as "mailer-app-args" to ssmtp.exe,
I am not aware of how to resolve the above-mentioned error message
without changing either my Gnus version or my mailer application.
