aerc-sendmail - Man Page

sendmail configuration for aerc(1)


aerc can defer to sendmail for the delivery of outgoing messages.


In accounts.conf (see aerc-accounts(5)), the following sendmail-specific options are available:

outgoing = </path/to/sendmail>

This should be set to the path to the sendmail binary you wish to use, which is generally /usr/sbin/sendmail. aerc will execute it with a list of recipients on the command line and pipe the message to deliver to stdin.
