Regarding "elm"

Hi

I have used "elm" in my script where the unix verison is HP-UX 11.11,

Now we are moved to HP_UX 11.23, when I tried to run my script it says

I am using elm as below in my script

elm -sx "Drop Ship $filename for Verizon Acc# $filename1" "${email_recipients[@]:?}" < $file

Notice:
This version of ELM requires the use of a .elm directory to store your
elmrc and alias files. I'd like to create the directory .elm for you
and set it up, but I can't in "batch mode".
Please run ELM in "normal mode" first.

can anyone help me on this use

do did you try running "elm" at the command line like it told you? If not, do so (as the user that needs to run the script.

oh yeah, if the script is running as a cron job, you may also be having issues with the minimal environment that is present.

Re: Regarding "elm"

Or simply stop using elm:

mail -s "Drop Ship $filename for Verizon Acc# $filename1" "${email_recipients[@]:?}" < $file

I believe that would work just as well.

Hi

As you said I run elm from the commandline, but it was failing to send the email
it directly pointing to /var/mail/ABC

I see this message.

Talk to the people who control the computer
at apc.com? Is that you or someone else?
