echo mypage.htm | mutt -s "hello news" myemail@gmail.com


Hello,

bash:
I would like to send an email with the content of it of HTML, so that it sends and displays an html when I open it wiht google mail.

Is there any way ? I guess that mutt should be capable of sending text as html.

I use nbsmtp and not sendmail.

thanks

Try "-i" for "Specify a file to include into the body of a message."

Sorry if I am pretty crap in linux, but I got the following error :
Code:
mutt -i /tmp/page.htm -e "Content-type: text/html; charset=us-ascii"  -s foobar myemail@gmail.com < /dev/null
Error in command line: Content-type:: unknown command
and without -e and string, it is still not working...
that's not so easy.

I am looking forward to reading you !!

thank you in advance

You forgot the parameter (a mutt parameter) "my_hdr".

You just change the mime type in the mail header and the mail with html content gets interpreted as html.

My command:

mutt -i your.html -e "my_hdr Content-Type: text/html" -s foobar you@gmail.com < /dev/null

You tried:

mutt -i /tmp/page.htm -e "Content-type: text/html; charset=us-ascii" -s foobar myemail@gmail.com < /dev/null
