Can I mail to gmail or any other mail from the program "mail" in unix.I dont know whether internet is connected to my system.But when I run netstat -rn command these are the first 10 lines.
To answer your question, the short answer is yes, you can.
You need to first figure out if you're connected to the internet or not. Then you need to set up your system to use the gmail servers for mail. You don't say what distro/version of linux you're using, or anything about your environment, so it's hard to give you any answer other than a generic "yes".
Lots of documentation can be found on Google....try there.
Sorry you're not "satisfied with the answers", but you still haven't provided any information to let folks help you. From my first reply:
"You need to first figure out if you're connected to the internet or not. Then you need to set up your system to use the gmail servers for mail.

Are you connected to the Internet? Can you use your web browser and hit any sites? Ping google.com?
What version/distro of Linux?
What environment? (Home, business? What firewalls/routers/switches are in place?)
Did you try the commands given, and what were the results?
Again, without useful details, there's very little anyone can tell you.
