bash: mail : command not found

Hi LQ,
I did install a brand new debian etch on my server, update and upgrade has been done.
I did installed a postfix and couple of tools ( like courier-* ).

But when i want to try to sent a mail with mail command, it says command not found.

I did use the method on the bottom of this thread succesfully, but any idea for this tool to be back on my server ?
Did i uninstall it when installing a package ?

Tks in advance


telnet <IP> 25
