Hi Folks,

As per the subject, the following command is not working as expected.
Code:

We don't know what you mean by 'not working', but as a guess put double quotes around $variable and try mailx

Code:
echo "$variable" | mailx -s "subject" "xxx@xxx.com"

try something like
echo "Subject: test" | /usr/lib/sendmail -v me@domain.com

you will see if mail is going out and where is sending problem
