What does the -t mean ( /usr/lib/sendmail -t )?
Posted on 01 January 2004 07:13 AM
Question:

What is the difference between:
$SEND_MAIL="/usr/lib/sendmail";
and
$SEND_MAIL="/usr/lib/sendmail -t";

Answer:

The -t switch tells sendmail that you want to specify the To: addresses in the header.
The To:, Cc:, and Bcc: lines will be scanned for recipient addresses.
