Subject: (7.37) Inn send mail to 'rmgroup' or 'newgroup'

On some installations the newssystem sends mail to a user newgroup.
This is the case if the mailer used in PATH_MAILCMD does not understand
the '-s' option which is used to specify a subject on the command line.
On some Linux /bin/mail seem to miss this option, as on some Sys V.
Try using /usr/ucb/Mail instead (if it exists).
