Re: send email in the MS outlook

You really don't need to configure sendmail. You just need to send the log to yourself using the mailx command:

# cat /some_log_file | mailx -s "subject line"

following this will send the log output to your e-mail.
"The difference between me and you? I will read the man page." and "Respect the hat." and "You could just do a search on ITRC, you don't need to start a thread on a topic that's been answered 100 times already." Oh, and "What. no points???"
