But why send text output as images? It makes it harder to read in emails.
Also, the image is cropped so the full text isn't visible.

Be aware that you've just posted your user name and password to the world.

The first error message says "couldn't resolve host" and that should be self
explanatory I think?

The second error is a problem with the server (or your network). curl wants to
connect back to the server for the data connection to do the file transfer,
but it can't connect to the port the server says it has opened for curl.

My advice: don't send "confidential messages" on public mailing lists and you
didn't specify what an "authorized use" of your email is! I hope you complain
to your management for including such nonsense in outgoing emails.
