I'm using my MUD to parse information into the mail command, and while it works, I've yet to figure out how to change the 'From' address, but more importantly, how to add linebreaks to the message. Is it possible or would it be simpler to push it into a sendmail php script?

Normally 'mail' is used by username@FQDN. Example, bob@foobar.com. AFAIK if you want it to come from a specific user, that user must be running mail. Or, you can pass the -U switch, or do a mail -f /var/mail/<username> (same as -U).

The mail editor is much like the editor 'ed' so, as to line breaks I'm going to have to say read up on ed and get to know it. I'm the heart of eVIl type of girl. In the end, it might just be simpler to pipe it all to a php script.


**EDIT
Forgot about mailx. It has an -r flag to do a 'from' field. Haven't tested it however.
**EDIT AGAIN
So, umm - mailx might not be the same as the opensource mailx. AIX system 5.x and 6.x have a mailx utility that I use at work to send messages to some users so they don't see 'from root@prodserver'. Instead they see 'cpmscriptserver@prodserver'.

Hope this helps some,

If anyone else needs to know, I solved this with the following command:

echo "Test Message" | mail -a "Content-type:text/html;" -s "Testing Email" "email@domain.com"


The Content-type allows you to send a body through with html tags, such as <br> for spacing, or including images or the like.
