I type the following at "command for Automatic Action":
echo 'trap recieved from $E down' | smtpmail -h mail.xxx.com -s '$E down'
I never recieve the mail. However, the above command works from command line.
The followings are from the ovaction.log:
Wed Apr 26 14:19:40 Command "echo 'trap reciev from compaq down' | smtpmail -s
l.xxx.com -s 'compaq down' firstname.lastname@example.org" returned standard output data:
'trap reciev from compaq down' | smtpmail -h mail.xxx.com -s 'compaq down'
It seems to me the pipe never work. Only echo works.
Echo takes everything after echo as string and does not recongize the "|"
I put c:\\mks\\mksnt\\echo.exe to use the echo from mks. The result is same.
Anyideas? Please help.
Thanks a lot.

could you please explain what you mean when you say that owner is bin?
I am using Windows NT. There is no user named bin.
Please help. Thanks a lot.

By default NT doesn't have user bin, it seems that the equivalent user bin is called LocalSystem Account.
I am not sure, but I believe that by default Automatic Actions are running in NT using a System Account while in UNIX they use user bin.
