Re: Send Mail.

You would need to do:
mailx -s "subject ..." linda.doon@xyz.com < report-file

Re: Send Mail.

Hi fizan,
Please use the syntax indicated by Dennis Handly. If you only send mail from your box I suggest you that set to deaf mode the sendmail service. This do not affect your outgoing messages and you gain a security environment. To test this first set deaf mode:
#/sbin/init.d/sendmail stop
Then try send an email with the appropiated syntax, or use this easy way:
#echo "Hello"|sendmail -v linda.doon@xyz.com
-v (verbose option) show you a useful debug trace.
To make this mode permanent please set to 0 the SENDMAIL_SERVER variable placed into /etc/rc.config.d/mailservs file. After change this value to 0 (zero) an error message appear if try to activate the service by the command:
#/sbin/init.d/sendmail start
