Depending on the value used for argument transport, the following arguments can be added:

Transport sendmail

To avoid encoding problems, one can place some arguments in a XML file and use the --xmlargs file.xml argument as the first command argument. Here is an exemple of such a file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  <arg>--sender</arg><arg>Bienven:ue &lt;;</arg>
  <arg>--text</arg><arg>Voil`a votre copie corrig'ee</arg>
