Sorry frob23, need your help again. What must i add to the script to notify me thru email (mayb a message of our choice) after it had done the things above?
I have tried this which i found on the web:
/usr/sbin/sendmail -t <<EOF
To: <receipients>
From: <me>
Cc: <more guys>
<and some more>
Bcc: <Guys you won't see>
Subject: Whatever

The message

To send mail I usually use the mail command. It is Fairly simple to use. And fits into a script well.

mail -s "This is my subject" -b "let's bcc some people here" -c "we'll CC some people in here" thisis@whoIamsendingit.too <<EOF
here I type
the many lines of the message
followed by a . on a line by itself.
Sorry about the delay... I totally missed when this came up again.
