saw this example but it did not work for me .

.....| sendresults subject="Splunk Internal Results" body="Here are the internal Splunk results for you to review" msgstyle="table {font-family:Arial;font-size:12px;border: 1px solid black;padding:3px}th {background-color:#AAAAAA;color:#fff;border-left: solid 1px #e9e9e9} td {border:solid 1px #e9e9e9}"

Thanks for using sendresults!

The msgstyle field can be used to style the html in the message. As you can see from the examples, we generally use it to style the format of the results table (rows, header, etc.). The field takes CSS and is applied in a style tag.

You cannot add custom HTML to the body as the text that's used to customize the body is meant to be text and is applied before the results table.

I was able to use the SPL you posted and had it come successfully with a grey results header row and a border around the results table.

If you need more assistance, please don't hesitate to reach out to



@arikd have you tried to reach out to Discovered Intelligence for the app Sendresults i.e. at

Also could you let us know if you noticed any errors while using sendresults command? Or did you see email without formatting? Or did the email not get sent out at all?
