Re: using elm for sending mail with attachment for yahoo Domain

Prashanth,
Summary:
You are using elm to send a compressed zip file to your arvinbrands.com email address.

Questions:
How do you retrieve this message into your gmail,hotmail and yahoo accounts?
What do you mean by "I get mails for gmail and hotmail"?

I would have expected to see something like:
elm -s "test" prashanth@hotmail.com < infile
elm -s "test" prashanth@yahoo.com < infile
.
.



Re: using elm for sending mail with attachment for yahoo Domain

Hi ,

If you see my 4th step where is use
step 4> elm -s "test" prashanth@arvindbrands.com < input-file # save it as email.sh

I execute the shell scripts.

note : i am able receive the mails on i.e 6 browser for gmail and hotmail
But not for yahoo ?
Is this treated as spam

Hi Prashanth,

Check your yahoo's junk mail folder for the message. It shouldn't go to junk mail..

Hi,

I have checked the Junks mail .

In Hotmail this was treated as junk . i changed the status.

Only Yahoo has the problem.

Hi Prashanth,

Check in your server that you got any mailer-daemon notices of failure. Also, Could you able to send/receive mails to yahoo without attachments ?

Re: using elm for sending mail with attachment for yahoo Domain

hi,

1. I observed one thing in smtp server (Relay server )
when i use
a) sendmail -f prashanth@arvindbrands.com prashbr@yahoo.com < /etc/hosts
i see From id as prashanth@arvindbrands.com
b) elm -s "test" prashbr@yahoo.com < input-file
Then i see from id as root@r3qas
I have set the .elm/elmheaders as ptfiles@arvindbrands.com

Is yahoo.com treating as spam mail root@r3qas

Note :with sendmail /mailx i am not able send .gz files (gzip files)

Re: using elm for sending mail with attachment for yahoo Domain

Hi Prashanth,

>>Is yahoo.com treating as spam mail root@r3qas

Yes, it could be a reason too. Since we dont know Yahoo's spam list, not sure of it.

>>Note :with sendmail /mailx i am not able send .gz files (gzip files)

mails are not being delivered ? or some other problem ? Check mail.log for more information.

Re: using elm for sending mail with attachment for yahoo Domain

Prashanth,
I think you've answered your own question.
Yes, even when you change the FROM information so it does not show root@somehost, this information is still buried in sendmail's header record. It seems that Yahoo is obviously aware of it and is rejecting the mail as spam.

If Yahoo returns your mail, then you could have set up so the returned mail comes to the legitimate mail address, provided it is on a different platform like MS or GroupWise or something....then you could resend it from there. A pain, but might work.

Just a thought,
Rita

Re: using elm for sending mail with attachment for yahoo Domain

Prashanth,

Well...if you find it then please post the answer here !

What we found was that no matter how far we dug..there was still one area on the header record that we could not change the from info from "root@hostname"
....and so some mail got returned.

Rgrds,
Rita
