reporter-mailx - Sends contents of a problem directory via email.
reporter-mailx [-v] -d DIR [-c CONFFILE]
The tool reads a problem directory, composes an email message from the directory contents, and uses mailx to
send the message to specified recipient.
Properties of email messages can be specified in a configuration file, and via environment variables.
Configuration file contains entries in a format "Option = Value".
The options are:
The subject of the email message.
The sender of the email message.
The recipient of the email message.
Use yes/true/on/1 to attach all binary files from the problem directory to the email. This can cause the
emails to be very large.
