mailx or sendmail command

mailx or sendmail command

mailx or sendmail command

Can anyone provide the command how to send a text file as a attachment with a proper subject using mailx or sendmail command in UNIX.

Note: I am using HP-UX OS. The file send should be the attachment, not in the message body. In addition, I need to put in the mail subject as well.


RE: mailx or sendmail command

And what about the man command ?
man mailx
man sendmail

Hope This Helps, PH.

RE: mailx or sendmail command

You can send mail using mail command in unix console by simply piping file content to this command.

Eg. cat textfile | mail -s "Subject" receipent_mail_address

for example

cat /etc/password | mail -s "my Password file" liquidbrain@mail.com :)
