dtmail Sol.2.6 fails compared to /bin/mail & /usr/ucb/mail (smartuucp)

This used to work with 2.5.1.

When I use dtmail the From and Reply to addresses are really wrong.
(smartuucp)



dtmail: From: "Elie I. Mourad" <>  <--- What is this !
        Reply-To: "Elie I. Mourad" <>

And the top header has some control characters:


                      ---???

Try putting the following in your ~/.mailrc file:

set sentmailusername="emourad"
set sentmailhostname="adc.com"
set mypersonalname="Elie I. Mourad"

This is undocumented and ``unsupported'' (even in Solaris 7!),
but it's essential for many dtmail users.

It worked! Thanks.
Is this a bug or a feature.
This used to work on Sol2.5.1

A coworker was talking to me about 2 problems he was encountering with
Solaris 2.6 dtmail.  He had pointed dtmail to an IMAP server.  When he
displayed messages which had quite long lines, the lines were displayed
as truncated.  Now,if he saves the msgs off into a Unix mailbox file,
dtmail then displays the long lines wrapping as necessary.  Has anyone
an idea on how to convince dtmail to either display long lines as wrapped
or scrolled ?

The second problem was more severe.  He was unable to tell a running dtmail
that he wished to display mail in a different IMAP folder than the one
that he opened at command launch time.  Any attempt to enter the
server:folder name in mailbox file name dialog boxes resulted in
unix file directories being prepended to the name, of course resulting
in files not found.  Is dtmail in Solaris 2.6 unable to switch IMAP
mail folders?

1. /usr/bin/mail vs. /usr/ucb/mail

A strange thing:

If I put my home direcroty on my local Sun workstation, I can use both
/usr/ucb/mail and /usr/bin/mail to read/write emails. But if I move my home
directory to a NFS server (another Sun workstation), only /usr/bin/mail
works. /usr/ucb/mail just hangs up without displaying anything.

Any idea?

2. Where's EIDE.TXT?

3. /usr/bin/ls /usr/ucb/ls /usr/local/bin/ls

4. AOUT Madness and Netscape.

5. mailx vs. /usr/ucb/mail, Sol 9 Rec patch cluster

6. benchmarks on linux/alpha?

7. odd problem with Solaris 2.3 /usr/ucb/mail and nfs-mounted /var/mail

8. Compatibility question??

9. Is there a way to send mail attachment using /usr/ucb/mail ?

10. why /usr/bin/mailx /usr/bin/mail set the group to be that of the sender

11. 2.6 FCS -> 2.6 5/98 upgrade fails because /usr moved to /usr:2.6

12. /usr/ucb/mail fails to send email

13. /usr/bin/mail won't deliver mail locally!
