Problem about command "mail" and "mailx".

Post by Jarungwit BOONPE » Fri, 09 Mar 2001 19:38:29



Dear sir,
    I used Solaris-2.5.1 and just patch system last month.
When I used command "mail" or "mailx" to send mail
to user on local host, header mail of receiver show only
login name. Not show E-mail address. I want to show E-mail
in order to reply to me correct.

    Header mail show below when I used command

        Date: Sat, 3 Mar 2001 23:49:43 +0700 (GMT)
        From: System Administration <sysadm>   <--------- show only

        To: bjarungw                                     <----------
show only login "bjarungw"

    But when I sent mail to user on other host this problem
not occur.
    Please let me know how to solve this problem ?
                Thank you very much.
                      regards,
                     Jarungwit.

this is how it's designed, name only is all You need to reply on
the same host. If You want a full mailaddress as reply-to then
