A: Please refer to http://www.geocel.com/windmail/library/formmail.htm
There is a modified version of FormMail which has been tested with
Windows NT and WindMail.
Q: Is WindMail available on RISC versions of Windows NT.
A: No, but it will be soon!
Q: Where do I place the 'windmail.exe' file?
A: In any directory in your PATH. If you have a utilities directory,
then it would best fit there; otherwise the Windows directory should
work just as well.
Q: I tried to specify a Subject with the -b switch, but it did not show up!
A: You may need to use the -h (don't expect a header) option. Otherwise,
WindMail will wait for the end of a mail header to insert the Subject. If
one is not provided, WindMail may never insert the Subject.
Q: I downloaded a Perl/CGI script, but it calls /usr/bin/sendmail,
how do I make it use WindMail instead?
A: In most all cases, you only have to change to '/usr/bin/sendmail'
Q: Do you support the Sendmail '-t' switch?
A: Starting in WindMail 1.0 we fully support the -t switch.
Supported header fields are To:, From:, Cc:, and Bcc:. Bcc: lines
are deleted from the message. (-t allows you to specify recipients
and senders in the message header that you provide to WindMail)
Q: Have any Security applications using WindMail been written yet?
A: AgentURL at http://www.geocel.com/agenturl/ uses WindMail as an email
transport. It monitors bad HTTP requests on your Web Server and
analyzes to determine the intent, or malintent of the requestor. It
ranks malicious queries on a point scale and allows you to send
High Priority mail in case of a security infraction. AgentURL
includes a single license of WindMail.
Q: How can I make WindMail work from my programs?
A: Look below for examples:
Below is a Code Segment in C
fprintf(pipemail,"Subject: Hello World\n");
fprintf(pipemail,"This is the easiest way to implement WindMail \n");
fprintf(pipemail,"in a CGI script written in C.\n");
Below is the same Code in Perl 5.001 for Windows NT
open(MAIL,"|windmail -t") ;
print MAIL "To: benc\@geocel.com\n";
print MAIL "From: benc\@geocel.com\n";
print MAIL "Subject: Hello World\n\n" ;
print MAIL "This is the easiest way to implement WindMail \n";
print MAIL "in a CGI script written in Perl.\n";
# The next line is very important
print MAIL ".\n" ;
