I guess there is no way to specify the TO's name in the SENDMAIL command?

At least the HELP dfoesn't say anything about it...

It wouldn't be much use if you couldn't!

Sendmail address subject text

Where "address" is the destination.

But the forum screwed it up by removine some text. Inside SENDMAIL's address was

"Vincent E. Fatica [lessthan][email protected][greaterthan]"
I think there are some other combinations of name and address that SMTP servers recognize. TCC just needs the whole thing quoted (as one argument). When I received the message mentioned above, its "To:" header was:

Code:
To: "Vincent E. Fatica" [LT][email protected][GT]
That's typical. And the SMTP conversation included simply

Code:
RCPT TO:[LT][email protected][GT]
all as it should be AFAIK.

Rex,

I looked at the CHM for v8 and v13, under sendmail. The passing of the recpient isn't documented and in the v13 the /X param is listed under Options but not in the Format area.
