    I have almost written my backup script but what I want to do is email the log file my script creates.

    So what I need is an example of how to email from the command line (shell script)

    The old Berkeley mail prog:
    cat logfile | mail -s 'backup log' emailaddress

    for nail (if you have it)
    nail -s 'backup log' -a logfile emailaddress

    I forgot mutt. You can use it similarly to my previous example.
