This is the wrong approach. You need to use a user agent like mailx. Or you need to be a user agent. And that is complex.
Briefly, you need to format a complete header which includes a subject line. Then you append you message to that. And feed the whole thing into sendmail.
But instead of that, you should use mailx or another user agent. There is nothing wrong with mailx. "some is not happy" is no reason to abandon mailx. If there is a valid technical reason, find out what it is. Otherwise just tell "someone" to go climb a rope and use mailx. You can't please everyone.
