echo  -e To: 'The Persons Name ' \\n\\n Body of mail \
| /usr/sbin/sendmail -F "From Name" \
-f [email protected] -t [email protected]

Where -e says I want to interpret \\n as a newline.
-F is the from description
-f is the from address
-t is the to address


export MYVAR=Hello
echo -e To: "I\'m A loser baby "\
\\nSubject: 'A test subject'\\nX-Custom-Header: \
\"$MYVAR My custom Header with escaped double quotes allow variable interpolation\"\
\\n\\n Body of mail | /usr/sbin/sendmail -F "Send Me A Winder" \
-f [email protected] -t [email protected]
