Need a small shell script

Hi

I have problem to sent a mail after i done my rsync cron job. I don't want to receive a mail after each rsync done by using " .. | mail -s "" hl@abc.com. So, I log the message to a logfile. But I faced another problem.

ex of my code:

--------------------------------------------------

#!/bin/sh
       

# start rsync test source and test list
set LOG=/tmp/rsync.$$.`date|awk '{printf "%s\n", $4}'`.txt

echo $LOG

echo "rsync /fs1/projA:" > $LOG
/usr/bin/rsync -Lpgtrzv --numeric-ids /afs/projA/
 /fs2/projA/ >> $LOG

echo "" >> $LOG
echo "rsync /fs1/projB/:" >> $LOG
/usr/bin/rsync -Lpgtrzv --numeric-ids /afs/projB/ /fs3/projB >> $LOG

#... more files to sync

(uuencode $LOG $LOG;) | mail -s "Rsync Message" hl@abc.com

# All done, exit ok
exit 0


---------------------------------------------

From this code, I get an unformated attachment txt file when i open directly from outlook. It is hard to read.


Is there any way to:

1. print the content of the log file into the mail? Then i can read directly from my mailbox instead of open the attachement.

or

2. I can read the file in a correct file format when i open thru outlook?

thanks
hl

I will get a NULL message body and not attachment without using (uuencode .....;)|mail ....

Your logfile is a text file, why don't you just do:

mailx -s"Rsync Message" your-email-add < $LOG

or

mail youremail < $LOG

instead of uuencode, with uuencode you have to read it on a UNIX/Linux box with uudecode.

The above example allowing to put your logfile in your email body, you can use whatever email client to read it

either mail the file as text (as suggested before),
or add a valide MIME header to the uuencoded text,
or use a MUA which can handle it without MIME header ;-)
