Hey,

Above Boldfaced, shows redirection but whats the command in it ??
it should be ..
mail -s "Plz find the attachment for the currently Running application" naveed@cap.com < cat /tmp/new1.txt

Otherwise use pipe as I gave the example previously..

cat /tmp/new1.txt | mail -s "Plz find the attachment for the currently Running application" naveed@cap.com


Try this one..hope it'll work. Smilie

Bug

instead of using the mail command, use mailx.

it should be like this:

mailx -s "Plz find the attachment for the currently Running application" naveed@cap.com < /tmp/new1.txt

I just checked the functionality of this in my unix environment:

echo "Hi hw are you" > /tmp/new1.txt
mailx -s "kshfks" myid@domain.com < /tmp/new1.txt

And I got the mail in my domain
