Need to send email from command promt


Dear All,

I am very new to linux environment. I need a solution where I can send email from my linux command prompt. I have a linux server where Oracle is installed and I have a seperate SMTP server for mailing purpose for my office. Now based on some activity in the oracle I need to send email from this server automatically to the respective email id's in the company. As I told earlier I have a SMTP server, I only need to send mail from the oracle installed linux server to the individuals. I have installed RHEL 5.3 where oracle is running.

One senario is when oracle writes a file say a alert file or trace file in the path say /oracle/admin/udump/trace directory a email will be send to our dba at dba@xxx.ae Mean to say when a OS file is generated or updated in the above linux path a mail should be fired from linux command prompt

PLZ HELP URGENTLY!!!

Regards
Ayon

Can your Linux connect to SMTP server? If can, please read man mail or man mailx.

HI Ayon,

to be able to send mail from your linux server, you need to have a mail service pacakage installed (like sendmail mutt etc)

You can check it by using
#ps -aef |grep mail
or
#rpm -qa |grep mail

we you get pacakage name then try following command
#echo “Test mail, ” | mail -s “test” you@youremailid.com


Let me know if this helps
