Sendmail or mailx sending to external SMTP server
Posted on 2013-06-07
I just realized in my wealth (LOL) of linux knowledge, I have never set up an email client. I have a script that needs to send a log file. I use a program on windows called blat, which is simple and light. When you install blat, you point to an SMTP server (open relay) and assign an email address.... Easy as pie.
Without linking (I've read about 300 pages of trash), can anyone please provide a simple step by step to send email from the command line/shell without blowing my mind setting up MTA's and postfix.... I literally just need to send a log file to my email account from the linux machine on the same physical network and my patience are wearing thin...
