Seems like mailx -t does not handle multi-line subjects and .sig
properly: may have some digging to do there. Other mail clients
do not support plain text attachments: I've used most in Cygwin,
and built mailx from s-nail based on Heirloom, as Heirloom mailx
just failed to email  from Cygwin.

Looked for that, and everything there, but:

$ uname -srvmo
CYGWIN_NT-10.0 2.5.2(0.297/5/3) 2016-06-23 14:29 x86_64 Cygwin
$ git --version
git version 2.8.3
$ man git | fgrep git-send-email
$ git help send-email
No manual entry for gitsend-email
$ git help git-send-email
No manual entry for git-send-email
$ man git-send-email
No manual entry for git-send-email
$ ls -1 /usr/share/man/man1/git* | wc -l
$ ls /usr/share/man/man1/git-send-email*
ls: cannot access '/usr/share/man/man1/git-send-email*': No such file or directory
$ git send-email
git: 'send-email' is not a git command. See 'git --help'.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
