Thanks for all the reply's. The answer is to use the '-s' option.


cat message | usr/ucb/mail -s "Enter subject here" esanborn

Original question:

I am sending data to someone in a script via piping it to /usr/ucb/mail.
I want to have 'something' in the Subject: header. Right now it
is blank. Is there an easy option to /usr/ucb/mail? Should I use
procmail instead?


cat blah.blah | /usr/ucb/mail esanborn
