To describe methods by which email can be sent from the Hipchat Server terminal/command-line interface.


Hipchat Server includes a Postfix mail environment, which uses the sendmail command. To send an email using this command:

  1. Generate an email using vim or nano with the following format:

    To: <toAddressGoesHere>
    Subject: <emailSubjectGoesHere>
    Please note that the "To:" address defined above will not determine where the email is sent - it only modifies the appearance of the email in the recipients inbox.

  2. Use the following command to send the message:

    sendmail < <messageFile>
