Error description

  • Data Manager sendmail function on Linux missing subject
    line.??When using the sendmail function on Redhat Linux we see
    the subject line in the body of the e-mail and not on the
    subject line. Although I cannot replicate this issue exactly
    (our testcase Redhat box doesn't send e-mail) I can use the mail
    or mailx command to verify the subject line is in the body of
    the e-mail.??Output from Putty:??Data Manager v8.4.102.18 --

Local fix

  • A workaround is possible (although warnings messages are generat
    ed) as       follows:
                            Create an executable shell script called
     "mailx" in the Data Manager        bin directory. The contents
    of this script is a single line as follows       :
                                                                /bin
    /mailx -I $*
            This script will call the system version of mailx but wi
    th a modified       command line. (To clarify any font issues -
    the option is capital i)        To ensure that Data Manager uses
     the new executable script you must         ensure that the DM b
    in directory is before the system mailx location        on the P
    ATH.
        You can use commands like "which" to test in your environmen
    t which         version of the "mailx" command will be executed.
     It must be the one in       the DM bin.
    On SUSE the mailx script should be: /usr/bin/mailx -~ $*
