An option to automatically mail the report somewhere would be useful as well.

We often do the following

run sosreport
scp to our desktop
email to destination

better would be

sosreport -t someone@somewhere

Hello Jim,

You can avoid using a desktop mailer with mutt:
mutt -s "sosreport" -a /tmp/sosreport-details.tar.bz2 someone@somewhere < sosreport_message

The 'mail' command from RHEL6 also provides support for attachments using the -a switch.

Best regards,

Pierre Carrier
