What I would like to do is replace the subject of the email with the current folder name, but don't want to type it in directly I want Unix to enter the follder name automatically, is this possible, maybe by using the "pwd" command?
If you're using a shell that accepts basic Bourne shell syntax (such as a Bourne shell, bash, or ksh), you can just use:
mail -s "$PWD" <my email address> <success.txt
