Shell Scripts

Send mail with a BASH Shell Script

Like any good programmer, I try to automate the crap out of everything. If you have to do it more than once, I try to write a script for it. This time I want to show you how you can easily send an e-mail from a BASH script. The idea is that you want the script to send out an email to notify a user that something has happened. We’re going to use the GNU Mail utility here.
