Question unable to sent mail in html format by mailx command.

I use maix command to sent mails.
i can sent only plain text mails.

Unable to sent mails in html format.
while sending mails in html format, the received mail has the html code only.

I think that you will have to use sendmail instead of mailx to send inline html, e.g....
Code:
#!/usr/bin/ksh

export MAILTO="spam@ebay.com"
export CONTENT="filename.html"
export SUBJECT="Subject"
(
 echo "Subject: $SUBJECT"
 echo "MIME-Version: 1.0"
 echo "Content-Type: text/html"
 echo "Content-Disposition: inline"
 cat $CONTENT
) | /usr/sbin/sendmail $MAILTO

thankx

it worked with sendmail..

when i tried the similiar way in mailx by

( echo "Content-Type: text/html"; cat <<filename.htm>>; ) | mailx -s 'xx' xx@x.com

it give the html source code insists of html formatted file.

Is that not possible to convert sendmail to maix ...?



In sendmail the from address can be change, but in mailx the from address remains the user login address, I need to do with mailx only.

The mailx utility is a front-end for sendmail.

It is not possible to use mailx to send inline html, but you can attach html documents.
# 5  
Fine.

After sending the mail by SendMail,

when i saw the mail, the From address was there.
But the To Address is not there at the receipt end.

How to get the to address in the maix box and also the cc(if any).
# 6  
You should look at the manual pages for sendmail. I have only included the bare minimum to get you started. You can add headers like "To:", "Cc:", "Bcc:", "Apparently-To:", etc. This can be done manually or via the -O options, e.g. -O "NoRecipientAction=add-to"
