Use exim to attach file
 
Hello.

From the command line, how would you attach a file & mail it out using exim?

Tinkster 11-01-2007 01:21 PM

Exim is an MTA (Mail transport agent) that doesn't concern itself
much with attachments. You want to use mutt, mailx, nail or some
other MUA (Mail user agent) to do the attaching ... for mutt this
looks something like:

Code:

echo "Message ..."| mutt -s Subject -a file recipient

Cheers,
