I am using following simple method to send mail, but not familiar how to change the font of particular text where error is seen.
Pls help

Code:
{
echo "From: "
echo "To:  abc@xyz.com
echo "Subject: Status Report - for jobs -- $DATE"

cat /tmp/report.$DATE
} | /usr/sbin/sendmail -t

You will have to build the body of the email using html tags to use color.
# 3  
I am not familiar with HTML tags. can anyone provide the sample please?
# 4  
The new way: <span style='color: blue;'>Hello</span>
The old way: <font color="blue">Hello</font>
The new way is preferred, but some old email clients might want the old way.

Thank you Corona688
That worked. but after little tweak. separated failures and Success in 2 different files and added <br> tag in the failure file that will highlight the failures first in the report.
