[ydl-gen] Sharplabs YDL FAQ

Hello,

I just discovered that the Sharplabs (magnificent) YDL FAQ is back in
operation. I thought it had gone belly up for good about a year ago
but I guess the proprietor (Bill Sharp?) resurrected it. The only
thing is that the entries don't seem to have been updated in a _long_
while.

[ydl-gen] Sending mail from the command line

Hello all, I've been trying to figure out how to send an e-mail using
a tcsh script. I've created a script to monitor my server's IP and
update the DNS server when it changes (I'm on dynamic IP).

I want to send myself an e-mail whenever it has to update the DNS
server (at present it sends root an e-mail but I don't check my root
e-mail that frequently).

I've been trying to use mail to send an e-mail but cannot automate the process:

mail -s My\ subject my.email <at> nowhere.com

At first I tried piping a file into the command but haven't got that
to work (composing the e-mail requires one to press ^D to terminate
the e-mail followed by an enter to accept no cc:).

Any ideas? Is there another mechanism I should be using to email stuff
automagically? Is there an interface to send mail I should be using?

Thanks, Eric.

Re: [ydl-gen] Sending mail from the command line

Why not route root's main to yourself:

As root:

(1) open /etc/aliases in your favorite editor

(2) add/edit the following lines at the bottom of the file

        # Person who should get root's mail
        root:           your-user-name

(3) run the command

   newaliases

(4) test
send root some email

Re: [ydl-gen] Sending mail from the command line

I like Joseph's suggestion. But if that is not an option for you, you could 
use postfix's sendmail instead of mail for your purpose.

echo "<mail contents including To:,From:,Date: and Subject: headers>" |
     /usr/sbin/sendmail -f <from address> <to address>

Note that although sendmail is stored in /usr/sbin, it can be used as an 
ordinary user as well for this purpose.

Re: [ydl-gen] Sending mail from the command line

Of course, a pipe should work, assuming sendmail is running. Here is an
example:

    % ls | mail -s "output of ls"  jsacco > /dev/null 2>&1

Re: [ydl-gen] Sending mail from the command line

Indeed, even simpler than using sendmail directly.

Thanks Joseph !

Re: [ydl-gen] Sending mail from the command line

Geert,

You are welcome.  

I use constructs like that within a crontab file to email the output of
some command.

On another subject... 

Good to see the list is coming alive once again.  Can a new release be
far behind??? [:-)]

Thank you very much Geert and Joseph. I'll play with your suggestions
and see what I do.

PS Yes, it is encouraging to see the list coming alive. A small
community is nice but too small a community makes it difficult to ask
questions (or to sustain itself).

Eric.

Re: [ydl-gen] YDL list activity (was: Sending mail from the command line)

I currently don't have any machines running YDL anymore. My good old Powermac 
G3 died fatally somewhere last year. I bought a small Mac Mini afterwards, 
but I never came around to installing linux on it yet.

I am still actively working with linux for my job though (currently Fedora 
Core and Mandrake), so I'm not completely out of the scene.

The ydl community was my first true linux experience, which is probably why I 
stick around on the list even if I don't have any YDL systems running 
anymore. Although my knowledge is currently not ydl-centric anymore, when a 
question pops up that's more linux-general -and some topic I know about- I 
still post. It's my way of returning to the community.

If a new YDL release would come up, chances are good I will use that to 
install on the Mac Mini :-) We'll see what happens.

Cheers

Geert
