e-mail with multiple binary attachments!

Hi,

I have to send email from UNIX with multiple excel attachments and the sender name needs to be customized (sender name need not to be UNIX user).

I have checked many ways from this forum and other sources. But, nothing did work for me.

Please help me!

thanks,
Raja.

Many mail commands suppiort the -r <from_address> option, does yours?

You can uuencode the individual attachments and include them in the message body, something like this:

Code:
(
    uuencode /path/to/file1.xls file1.xls
    uuencode /path/to/file2.xls file2.xls
) | mail -r from@example.com -s "subject" to@example.com
