What do you mean by "even the filename is mentioned in the headers"?
There's no filename that I can see in the example mail you included in
this post.

And ..."receiving the file"? Yes, you received the sample email, but
you'd not expect to receive a file as well?

Does the SMTP server create any logs - in particular does it show the
message on its travels?

Is cURL meant only to send a single mail if that's what's in the file
mentioned in
the cURL command? I'm wondering what would happen if your text file
a pair of outbound emails. Would two get sent? And if two were sent,
would the
body of the first one still fail to arrive at the destination?

Jeremy Nicoll - my opinions are my own.
