Hi Larry,

The version of mail we have (SunOS 5.6, Last change: 21 Feb 1995) doesn't support a -s option.

mailx does support -s but I am having problems getting it to work with CVS notification.
It works from the command line but not when called from notify.
I'll keep you posted.

Does it not support it or does it just insist that it come before the
addresses? You might want to try changing your notify file from:

ALL mail %s -s "CVS notification"


ALL mail -s "CVS notification" %s

(which is how it is in the current development version of CVS).
