Hi I'm looking for a very simple 2 - 3 line mailx script to send a one line message to my email address. I need this to test setting up some jobs in a scheduler program.

You can do:

#!/bin/ksh
echo "my messgae" | /usr/bin/mailx -s "My Subject" you@soemwhere
exit
# End of script

or mail a text file

#!/bin/ksh
/usr/bin/mailx -s "My Subject" you@soemwhere </path-to/mymessage.txt
exit
# End of script


man mailx

If you are going to use it in crontab:

0 3 * * * /pat/to/myscript 2> &1 | mailx -s "script results" me@mydomain

Hi,

I am repeating since there shouldn't be a space

0 3 * * * /pat/to/myscript 2>&1 | mailx -s "script results" me@mydomain

Thanks yuzh, in addition I had to change some permissions but it ran perfectly in Contol -M.

Thanks,
