shell script to send a mail on success or failure of task

Posted 07-02-2007 at 08:13 AM by

Hi All,
I have written a shell script which takes the back up of data from Bugzilla, everyday. Now I want to upgrade this script with the option of sending a mail to me(or any respective person) in both the scenarios i.e. upon success and failure scenarios of back up with the appropriate information. Can anyone help me in this aspect?

Basically at the moment I'm trying to unlearn what I picked up from Red Hat/SUSE 3 years ago because I always broke them and reinstall was a monthly occurrence. Anyway so far it's successfully running Samba, AMP (Apache/MySQL/PHP), and all happily from the command line - back to my CLI roots!

My name is Linnea Svensson, a female swedish computer enthusiast...
I love to run my programs on debian linux because of the stability. My main skill in computers in java programming and networking.

I always use samba, which I know very good.

I will try to post things here and help where I can and learn very much from all you talented guys and gals out there ;-)

Take care
