FTP multiple files from remote server to local server

Hi,

I am facing a weired problem in my FTP script. I want to transfer multiple files from remote server to local server everyday, using mget * in my script. I also, want to send an email for successful or failed FTP. My script works for file transfer, but it don't send any mail. There is somthing wrong with mailx option, I don't know what.

If I use the FTP part of the script like below, mailx works fine, but then mget is not working (only get is working) and no files are transfered.

`ftp -vin <<- END_INPUT > $LOG/ftp_files.log 2>&1
open $DEVICE
user $LOGIN $FTPPASS
cd $PICKUP
prompt off
mget *.txt
quit
END_INPUT`

The original script is below:

#!/bin/ksh

export DROPOFF=/data/local/temp
export PICKUP=/data/remote/temp
export MSG=/data/local/temp
export IND_FILE=/data/local/temp
export LOG=/data/local/temp
export LOGIN=username
export FTPPASS=password
export DEVICE=remoteserver

cd $DROPOFF

ftp -vin <<- END_INPUT > $LOG/ftp_files.log 2>&1
open $DEVICE
user $LOGIN $FTPPASS
cd $PICKUP
prompt off
mget *.txt
quit
END_INPUT
EXIT_STATUS=$?


if [ $EXIT_STATUS -ne 0 ]
then
echo "[%s - %s]ERROR: FTP failed with an exit status of %s\n" \
%0 "$(date +'%x %X')" $EXIT_STATUS
mailx -r mlqis4s@server.private.company.com -s \'"Files FTP failed'" user@company.com < $MSG/ftp_fail.msg
exit 1
fi
echo mailx -r mlqis4s@server.private.company.com -s \'"Files FTP successful'" user@company.com < $MSG/ftp_succ.msg

exit 0

Please anybody have a clue to solve that? Thanks in advance!
