Using mail more effectively

Hi,

I'm new to Unix.I use HP - Unix. I was wondering if anybody , could tell me how to include a 'Subject' section when sending mails to Microsoft Outlook?.

I know a small amount about posix scripting, sed, awk,so don't hesitate to contact me and I'll help you if I can.

Regards
Mark
