NAME

reporter-mailx - Sends contents of a problem directory via email.  

SYNOPSIS

reporter-mailx [-v] -d DIR [-c CONFFILE]  

DESCRIPTION

The tool reads a problem directory, composes an email message from the directory contents, and uses mailx to send the message to specified recipient.

Properties of email messages can be specified in a configuration file, and via environment variables.  

Configuration file

Configuration file contains entries in a format "Option = Value".

The options are:

Subject

The subject of the email message.

EmailFrom

The sender of the email message.

EmailTo

The recipient of the email message.

SendBinaryData

Use yes/true/on/1 to attach all binary files from the dump directory to the email. This can cause the emails to be very large.
 

Integration with ABRT events
