sendmail and it's message: "database '@' has not been defined"

Post by morone » Thu, 11 May 1995 04:00:00

Mail is sent without a problem,  however, I would just
like to remove this annoying message by defining the database
it wants.

The question is:  what does it want.  I've been through the man
page and FAQ's that I could find.  Anybody have an answer?  

I'd appreciate any help I could get.  Thanks.

1. Why doesn't echo "text" 'command' "more text" work?

                 ^                                        ^
Wrong quotes, should be -
   echo "You have" `grep Subject: /usr/spool/mail/me | wc -l` "messages."
or -
   echo "You have `grep Subject: /usr/spool/mail/me | wc -l` messages."

But, another problem is, if you've no mail, /usr/spool/mail/me does not
exist, leading grep to say:
   grep: can't open /usr/spool/mail/me
Wc will still report 0.

You might try -
   sh -c 'echo "You have `grep 2>/dev/null Subject: /usr/spool/mail/me | wc -l` messages."'

Hope this helps.
