Sending mail from on-server

Runrev support does not respond, so asking help from the community.
There used to be a good code strip in the LC guides, which allowed kicking out e-mail from the server. Great way to automate a lot of follow-up and support for your app.
For a couple of weeks ago someone changed something in the server, and the mail capability stopped from working. I got an advice from on-rev support to use
shell command /usr/bins/sendmail -t < filename, where in the file you have lines to:emailaddr / from:emailaddr / subject:subject / then body.
Now, how to put it exactly in LC
shell ("/usr/bins/sendmail -t < filename")
As you store your filename in your own domain area, the sendmail command responds an error cannot allocate memory:
- do I have to shovel my file into some special area?
- do I have to issue username & password with the filename somewhere?
- or something else?
I have succeeded protecting myself from Unix so far, so happily copy a working solution here.
