Automating Pine


Hi there --

Is there a way to automate pine to send an e-mail with an attachment?

For example, the command syntax that I currently have is:

/usr/bin/pine -attach <path to filename> <destination address>

This configuration opens pine and allows me to manually send the attached file via <CTRL> <X>.

Is there a way to accomplish this without my manually having to send the e-mail? Thanks.

You can use mail (or nail in some distros) to do this:
Code:
mail -s subject recipient@domain.com < attached-file
