Prints the list of available DLF converters and exits.
Prints the list of available output formats and exits.

--output-format|-o output format
Selects the ouput format in which to generate the report.
--template name
Uses the report configuration named name to generate the report.
--log-file logfile
Selects the log file that should be processed instead of STDIN.
--subject|-s subject
Sets the subject of the email message. Defaults to 'Your format report'.
--extra-file file
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.
