The email gateway cat command works almost identically to its command-line counterpart; simply send the gateway a message with a subject line of "cat (template-name) (issue-name) and you should get the response momentarily. In the following example, the user has set up a yaktrack repository under a special user name ("yaktrack") which forwards all incoming mail to the email gateway:

[vputz@yak_prime temp]$ mail yaktrack
Subject: cat defect defect2
(presses control-D to terminate message)
Cc: (presses return)
Null message body; hope that's ok
[vputz@yak_prime temp]$ mail
Mail version 8.1 6/6/93.  Type ? for help.
