Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

The mail command is part of the mailx package, which is usually installed (but apparently not on your Slackware). Google indicates that Slackware has the mailx package avialable, so install it. You will need to install sendmail or similar MTA to forward mail to your remote SMTP server.

I have some text files containing email addresses, and each set of addresses and the accompanying message is different. Instead of having to go into an email client or Web interface each time to compose a new email and copy/paste everything, I would like to write a shell script that will read the addresses from file 1 and send them text 1, read the addresses from file 2 and send them text 2, etc. However, I don't know of a non-interactive mailer that can do this.
