Well, I gave up on using metasend with it's myriad switches
and tried from the cmdline. Closer. Still, no cigar.
I typed "text/html" wheen it asked for "Content-type".
That gave me the bold "test" from /tmp/test:
(Actually, in evoluton it was "test *test*".)
What I want is for non-GUI mailers like mutt and Mail to
and in the graphic/html mailers:
where the astarisks indicate a bold font. I triied
"multipart/mixed" annd other things "multipart/<>",
but it doesn't quite work... .
I have seen the raw message source from the multipart
mail that many people sentf me. I simply don't know how to
recreate this. --Things like:
Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary="NextPart_Webmail_9m3uFooBarBaz
Maybe metasend is smart enough to accept
Otherwise, I'm stumped.
