How to send mail from command line
I issue $ mail -s "This is my subject"
Then I start typing what I think is the body.

How do quit typing and actually send the mail to the recipient?

Maybe pressing [CTRL-D] will help.

Sure did.

How intuitive.

sajiviswanath, you have an answer in the first post of the thread. Of course, you need to have 'mail' program installed.

a period "." on a line all by itself after the body of the message should work.
