Hi,

I am trying to use the mail command in the following way:
$ mail root < /tmp/db_reorg.log
OR
$ echo "Coming home for dinner!" | mail sylvia@home.com
to send a file that is generated automatically everyday by the UNIX machine.  I do not get any error message when I use the above command but I never get the email to the destination address.  I guess that the UNIX machine is not properly configured to send email in that way.

I would like assistance on this problem please.
