mailx command issue


i wrote one script to send the result of ignite backup to my mail, but i facing problem with mailx command

how can i send mail in one line like below


SUCCESS=$(tail ${LOG} | grep "completed successfully") ======> this is variable include text output

if [ "${PASSFAIL}" = "successfully!" ]; then


mailx -s "${SUBJ}" ${ADMINS} $SUCCESS    =====> here my problem


 i need to send the content of "$SUCCESS" variable, where in this syntax system will make the "$SUCCESS" as sender not body of mail

What is the correct syntax to do that  ? or if is there other way to resolve this problem

Try this:


echo $SUCCESS | mailx -s "${SUBJ}" ${ADMINS}
