There is no To: or Subject: header in that message.

If that message was sent by a command such as the above, that "mail"
command is behaving more like a "sendmail" command than like a "mail"

The bottom line is you can't use that "mail" command in that way.

What output do the following commands produce:

ls -l `which mail`

ls -l `which sendmail`

ls -l `which mailx`
