    Hello all!

    I have an issue i hope someone can help me with.

    I have a script that calls for a mail program. I used to use sendmail in the script which worked great. I had to move the script to a new server which is running exim4. Now the script has to have parameters set, like where to find the mail program, so when ${MAIL} is called it uses the program path, then uses functions like -s mail.yada.com -u [email protected] and so forth. But I do not know what program nor path to set in the script and what functions to set, like -s, -u, ect.

    Now when I'm on the server I can do [email protected]:mail because I have mailutils installed.

    Does anyone know what I could do here? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thank you!

    Normally mail server such as Postfix and Exim are compatible with Sendmail, which means they come with a binary called sendmail so that your scripts still run.
    which sendmail
    If there's an output, your scripts should run without changes.
