I try to use this method but havent success: send
[mazay at warp tesing]$ cat 111.tmp
From: test at phone.dn.ua
X-X-Sender: root at phone.dn.ua
To: Cyril Zlachevsky <mazay at phone.dn.ua>

[mazay at warp tesing]$ cat mailproc.pp
uses dos;
   Exec('/usr/sbin/sendmail.postfix','-U mazay at phone.dn.ua < 111.tmp');
[mazay at warp tesing]$ ppc386 mailproc.pp

3 Lines compiled, 0.0 sec
[mazay at warp tesing]$./mailproc
and after launch mailproc, only pressing '.' or Ctrl-Break can stop 
running program:
[mazay at warp tesing]$ps ax
10239 pts/1    S      0:00 ./mailproc
10240 pts/1    S      0:00 /usr/sbin/sendmail.postfix -U 
mazay at phone.dn.ua < 111.tmp
10241 pts/1    S      0:00 /usr/sbin/postdrop -r

Any ideas? Maybe I'm going wrong way?
