Mailing from AIX 5.3 to windows mail system.


I want to mail a log from my IBM AIX 5.3 server to my windows mailbox in my company every month.

Any ideas what the command would be?

Do I need to set any smtp settings?

cat log.file|mailx -s "log file"

I did the command but I get the below error?

I have replaced my email address with and my login with login@host to keep my mail address private.

The error message is:

----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
(reason: 504 <login@host>: Sender address rejected: need fully-qualified address)


How do you set the particular smtp settings for an AIX user?

Hope this makes sense.
