The Sendmail is working fine able to send the mail.

Re: Mailx attachmend issue in UNIX Server

What command do you use to send attached mail?

Have you tried other methods of sending attachments?

Shalom Vinod,

It uses sendmail but it gets the attachment done.

The domain issue has to do with sendmail configuration.

This can get complex, but I posted you the complete sendmail guide.

I am using this command

Re: Mailx attachmend issue in UNIX Server

Hi

Well, I can only say that the -r option is obsolete.

Hi,

I am using this command

mailx -s "WB Daily DG Usage Report of dated `date` " -r AutoMail@WB-OMCR-LogAnalyzer.com `cat /user3/OMCR_LOG/Reports/mail_address1.txt`


Try this:

cat /user3/OMCR_LOG/Reports/mail_address1.txt | mailx -s "WB Daily DG Usage Report of dated `date` " AutoMail@WB-OMCR-LogAnalyzer.com

Re: Mailx attachmend issue in UNIX Server

>Michael: Try this: cat mail_address1.txt |

You should replace that evil cat by:
mailx -s "WB Daily DG Usage Report of dated $(date)" \
AutoMail@WB-OMCR-LogAnalyzer.com < \
/user3/OMCR_LOG/Reports/mail_address1.txt

Unless mail_address1.txt is a list of additional mail aliases and not the body of the message?

Shalom Vinod,

You can't fix a domain problem on the email with a mailx command.

You will have to dink with sendmail to do that.
