Re: attaching mail in Unix.

Hi,

Here is one way I like to do it with the 'mail' command:

echo "Here is an attachment" | mail -s LOG -a log_file g.d@c.com

I 'echo' the text to mail because the mail command will complain if you don't have any text in the body of the message. That's not a problem from the command line, but it will hang things up if you use it in a script.

Hello.

mutt also supports this:

echo blabla | mutt -s subject -a file ... user@domain
