#1: strange mail behavior

Posted on 2010-07-01 19:05:41 by Yuri Csapo

Hi all, I have a number of identical virtual Linux machines (All RedHat Enterprise AS release 4
(Nahant Update 8)) and on one of them, invoking the 'mail' command generates an error, although the
command itself gets executed correctly. This is what I mean:

[root@overlook mail]# ls|mail -s "test" ycsapo@mines.edu
Unknown command: ""

But I do receive the message. To compare, here's the same thing on one of the other boxes:

[root@trailhead ycsapo]# ls|mail -s "test" ycsapo@mines.edu
Null message body; hope that's ok

And I also receive the message. By the way, I see the same thing even if I invoke mail all by itself
with no params.

I can't find a difference in configuration between the boxes. Any ideas where to look?

Thanks

Yuri

Hi,

Does /var/log/mail.log say something useful ?

Do you have either a ~/.mailrc file or a /etc/mail.rc file containing an
error?

Marshall, that did it! Somehow my /etc/mail.rc ended up replaced by a tarball of /etc/mail. I bet
it's autocompletion playing its tricks again...

Problem solved, thanks!
