Use of "scp" to send the file to email?

Hello,

I've read that the command "scp" can transfer a file to an IP or host.
Is it possible, and how, to send the file to an email address?

Thanks
Gisela

not via SCP.  SCP is just like FTP.

In this case any other way to transfer a file from my server for which I've only serial console access to an email address?

There's no way, if your server ONLY has serial console access, to get it to an e-mail address, the best you can do is to use zmodem like I suggested in your previous question:

If the server was connected to the internet, you should be able to just attach it to an e-mail by using pine or elm, and composing the e-mail as normal.
