Email is being recieved but the body of the message is missing.  I'm using the following command to send, where $name is the recipiants address

exec /usr/lib/sendmail "$name" < "/tmp/SMINT_tmp.print"

The file, /tmp/SMINT_tmp.print, look as follows.  I have a feeling that my problem may be comming from the Content-Type statement.  After wards I realized i should have just used Content-Type: TEXT/plain; charset=us-ascii.  But why would the message be delivered properly on one server, and then the body of the message be missing on another server.  



Subject: Transaction Report
Content-Type: MULTIPART/mixed; BOUNDARY=\n

what are these 2 server.
are they both have the same configurations, like they both are unix running same os and all.

The reason might be your mail configuration is not ready to read this kind of mails on another server.
