Using sendEmail inside a bash script.


Code:
#!/bin/bash
emailsend=larrythelegend@gmail.com
emailrec=larrythelegend@yahoo.co.uk
password=larry12345
name=larry

sendEmail -v -f "$emailsend" -s smtp.gmail.com -xu "$name" -xp "$password" -t "$emailrec" -o tls=yes -u  EMAIL WILL GO THIS TIME -m OH YEAH -a error.txt
Does not work in script but in terminal I can do:
emailsend=larrythelegend@gmail.com
emailrec=larrythelegend@yahoo.co.uk
password=larry12345
name=larry

Then run:

sendEmail -v -f "$emailsend" -s smtp.gmail.com -xu "$name" -xp "$password" -t "$emailrec" -o tls=yes -u EMAIL WILL GO THIS TIME -m OH YEAH -a error.txt
....................................................

when I run script above I get Error:

Feb 19 11:19:41 ubuntu sendEmail[13201]: DEBUG => SMTP-AUTH: Using PLAIN authentication method
Feb 19 11:19:41 ubuntu sendEmail[13201]: INFO => Sending: AUTH PLAIN Um9zcwBSb3NzAEJhdGlzdHV0YTY2Ng==

Have tried using mutt but too much install issues - sendemail works good from commandline just not in script is it a subshell issue?

How did you write your script? Maybe there are hidden windows carriage returns in there that are being passed into the command.

If you purpose is just to send an email, you could have tried other mail agents like mailx (see here), mail or sendmail etc.
Code:
~$ mailx -s "<subject" "larrythelegend@yahoo.co.uk" < error.txt

Sorry - using ubuntu 12 - bash script from terminal - no email (or any other apps installed).

Yes essentially I want to write a script which installs sendEmail application and sends an email (tried mutt but kept getting all kinds of "unable to attach" errors) so came across: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1268015
and sendEmail, installed all packages and was finally able to send an email, but when i put this sendEmail code in script it returned an authenticate error message, just wondering why is it a scope issue?


Code:
#!/bin/bash
          #### INSTALL ALL SENDEMAIL PACKAGES ETC...###############
     sudo apt-get install logwatch
     wget http://caspian.dotconf.net/menu/Software/SendEmail/sendEmail-v1.55.tar.gz
     tar zxvf sendEmail-v1.55.tar.gz
     sudo cp sendEmail-v1.55/sendEmail /usr/local/bin
     sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/sendEmail
     sudo apt-get install libio-socket-ssl-perl libnet-ssleay-perl perl
         #### Emter user info ###########
     emailsend=XXXXX@gmail.com
     emailrec=XXXXXX@yahoo.co.uk
     password=XXXXXXX
     name=XXXXX
       ###### Send Email ###############
sendEmail -v -f "$emailsend" -s smtp.gmail.com -xu "$name" -xp "$password" -t "$emailrec" -o tls=yes -u  -m Oh Yeah Fuck it -a error.txt
Error:

Checked all above in google help.html above, no joy

sendEmail -v -f "$emailsend" -s smtp.gmail.com -xu "$name" -xp "$password" -t "$emailrec" -o tls=yes -u TEST HEADER -m "logfor/$day" -a ~/error.txt


********************************************************************************

Email script alone will not work...have a go anyone?

Code:
#!/bin/bash
touch error.txt
day=$(date +"%T-%m-%d-%Y")
echo "Enter your email address"
read emailsend
echo "Enter your email password"
read password
echo "Enter recipient email address"
read emailrec
echo "Enter your first name"
read name
clear
echo "Sender is $emailsend"
echo "Password is $password"
echo "Recipient is $emailrec"
echo "Username is $name"
echo "logfor/$day"
sleep 8s
clear
sendEmail -v -f "$emailsend" -s smtp.gmail.com -xu "$name" -xp "$password" -t "$emailrec" -o tls=yes -u TESTHEADER -m "logfor/$day" -a ~/error.txt
