Question nail set header

Hi all.

I am kind a new in Linux, so please forgive me if some statements will be dumb.
So for some unknown reason server I am working on is using nail command instead of mail and mailx. I have googled around and fined out that it is possible to set mail header using command mail and option -a. But for nail option -a is attaching files. I tried to read nail manual (over 2000 lines), but I haven't found any alternative way to set headder.
If any body knows how to set header using linux mail client - nail, I would be very greatful.

I am using openSUSE 2.6.16.46-0.12-smp x86_64
version of nail: nail 11.25 7/29/05

Thanks in advance
Ricardas

BIFF(1) 						    BSD General Commands Manual 						   BIFF(1)

NAME
biff -- be notified if mail arrives and who it is from SYNOPSIS
biff [n | y | b] DESCRIPTION
The biff utility informs the system whether you want to be notified on your terminal when mail arrives. Affected is the first terminal associated with the standard input, standard output or standard error file descriptor, in that order. Thus, it is possible to use the redirection facilities of a shell to toggle the notification for other terminals than the one biff runs on. The following options are available: n Disable notification. y Enable header notification. b Enable bell notification. When header notification is enabled, the header and first few lines of the message will be printed on your terminal whenever mail arrives. A ``biff y'' command is often included in the file .login or .profile to be executed at each login. When bell notification is enabled, only two bell characters (ASCII 07) will be printed on your terminal whenever mail arrives. If no arguments are given, biff displays the present notification status of the terminal to the standard output. The biff utility operates asynchronously. For synchronous notification use the MAIL variable of sh(1) or the mail variable of csh(1). DIAGNOSTICS
The biff utility exits with one of the following values: 0 Notification is enabled. 1 Notification is disabled. >1 An error occurred. COMPATIBILITY
Previous versions of the biff utility affected the terminal attached to standard error without first trying the standard input or output devices. SEE ALSO
csh(1), mail(1), sh(1), comsat(8) HISTORY
The biff command appeared in 4.0BSD. It was named after the dog of Heidi Stettner. He died in August 1993, at 15. BSD
July 9, 2002 BSD
