I am not getting the Subject Title when sending mail from a Solaris server to the Outlook recipient.


#mail -s "Testing Subject title"

Here's what it shows in Microsoft Outlook (lil bit altered, but similar to it)

mailx works fine.. thanks.

The users have bunch of scripts with mail embedded - the worst case if have them alter all to mailx.. in the mean time, I'm still longing for the answer. I'm also having the Exchange adminstrators looking at it.
