I find it easiest to type up a file with the message in it like file.txt . Then I use the mail command like this .....
Code:
mail -s howdy email fred@yahoo.com < file.txt

Normally, you would type: user@someplace.com and not user@192.168.0.1 . So, that user needs to exist and someones dns server needs to be able to resolve the name of someplace.com .
