An additional text file that will be sent along the report. If the
output format is txt, it will be appended to the report.
The lr_log2mail command is similar to the lr_log2report(1) command with
the difference that the report is sent by email. The log file is read
from STDIN or from the file specified using the --log-file option. The
format of the log file is specified using the dlf_converter argument.
Use the --help-dlf-converters option to get a list of all currently
available DLF converters. All remaining arguments are interpreted as
email addresses to which to send the report. In case the log is passed
in a compressed format, it’s uncompressed on the fly, using gzip(1).
The report will be encapsulated in a MIME email appropriate for the
output format. For example, ASCII reports will be sent inline, PDF
reports will be sent as a file attachment and HTML reports should
appear inline in a HTML-capable mail reader.
The From and Reply-To headers in the outgoing emails are set to the
values of the lr_mail_from and lr_mail_replyto configuration variables.
