Hi all,

I'd like to use bmail or similar to send a very short, simple plain text mail (admin notification) to another email address.

From what I read on Google, one has to use the following parms: (use authentication)
Use Authentication: Yes
Use STARTTLS: Yes (some clients call this SSL)
Port: 465 or 587

...and account name / password as well.


But how to configure this with a simple command line tool such as bmail?
Any other tiny!!! solution???
