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.
