Hey

YOu don;t need to configure any thing, but ya make sure that your varsion have reference to command mail or mailx.

cat file1 | mailx -s $Subject $MailRecievers

file1 having the contents to be mailed.
$Subject having title of the mail
$MailRecievers haveing names of the mail recievers.

or

echo "Alter, Boss is there !! " | mailx -s "Boss" "abc.com"

Hope you got this !!
Otherwise goto "man mail" and explore it !Smilie

Hammer & Screwdriver Try This one

For sending the mails thru CLI via mail and mailx, You must have SMTP server. If you have SMTP Server you can use mail or mailx to sending the mails.

mail -s "Subject Whatever you want" user@your-domain.com < File_Name

File_Name file is contains contents for your mail body.

Give some info

Lets try step by step

1:- First check do you have SMTP service on in your Linux/UnixBox or not
Then create one file
> echo " Hi this is just for testing" >/tmp/testmail

Then send it via mail command

> mail -s "Testing" pankaj.choudhury@tcs.com < /tmp/testmail

Try to see the logs

> tail -n 50 /var/log/messages

If it will not work send me the log mesages, so I will suggest you somthing in better way

So Dun worry !!! Start

Hammer & Screwdriver Some qucik info

It seems to me your Linux/Unix box very busy so just give me the logs

grep -i "pankaj.choudhury@tcs.com" /var/log/messages

Because I didn't get any logs related to your SMTP, So send me the output of above command.
