NAMEreporter-mailx - Sends contents of a problem directory via email.
The tool reads a problem directory, composes an email message from the directory contents, and uses mailx to send the message to specified recipient.
Configuration file contains entries in a format "Option = Value".
The options are:
- The subject of the email message.
- The sender of the email message.
- The recipient of the email message.
- 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.
