sendmail question

How can I add a subject to the follwing command:

sendmail -f tirza.kiesler@hp.com to:tirza.kiesler@hp.com < sbapprv.log

(I tried adding subject:mysubj but get error messages)

First, the man page for sendmail states right near the top that "sendmailis not intended as a user interface routine."

I would suggest using mailx instead:

mailx -s tirza.kiesler@hp.com < sbapprv.log

Re: sendmail question

If it isn't obvious, you need to put the subject in quotes if more than one word:
$ mailx -s "longer subject" tirza.kiesler@hp.com < sbapprv.log

Shalom,

If you MUST use sendmail:

http://www.hpux.ws/mailfile2

That script does attachments which was why I developed it.
