Mailutils package is missing

Hi. trying to install mailutils. This is the error

root@OpenWrt:~# opkg find mailutils
root@OpenWrt:~# opkg install mailutils
Unknown package 'mailutils'.
Collected errors:
 * opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package mailutils.

There doesn't appear to be any such package available at all --[Name_pkg-dependencies*~]=mail&dataofs=200

What led you to believe that mailutils was an OpenWrt package?


I went to try to correct any outdated information, but didn't see it on the current current OpenWrt wiki.

What are you trying to accomplish? may have some helpful suggestions.

thanks for your reply. the following link
led me to believe that mailutils is available as in my debian systems.
Anyway, i have ssmtp in openwrt system and i would like to send emails from the cli and the command

echo "Hello world email body" | mail -s "Test Subject"

and in my case it states that mail is not installed.
Is there a way to accomplish the above?
