    How do I send a text message where mutt does not add any additional information ? I can use SMS gateways just fine, the problem is that when I use a Linux command of the form: echo “text” | mutt [email protected], the text that comes through is of the form, text. I need it to only be “text”.

    hI,

    When I sent a mail from my Linux box, with

    mutt \
    -e ‘my_hdr Content-Type: text/html’ \
    -s “${NOW} Controle File-Set SnapShots and Replications (${SUBJ})” \
    -a “/rbm/scr/rbm_check_snap_repl_legenda.html” ${TO_ADDR}

    I get the attachment as inline in my outlook 365 mail. The legenda file I mean.

    –liOOAslEiF7prFVr Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii Content-Disposition: inline
    V7000 File-System
    rbndtcv7k lnx_nfs_appldev_002 512G 15G 3% 498G
    –liOOAslEiF7prFVr Content-Type: text/html; charset=us-ascii Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=”rbm_check_snap_repl_legenda.html”
    Legenda: icTwa
    ect
    –liOOAslEiF7prFVr–

    What do I have to do, to get an real attachment in outlook 365

    Gr,Tom
