mail command


For a program I use I need the "mail" command that should be located in /usr/bin (ubuntu 9.04). How do I find it in synaptic.

Thanks,
Jason

I don't know how to do it in Synaptic, but you can try "apt-file". If you don't have it installed, install it and then run
Code:
sudo apt-file update
then run
Code:
sudo apt-file search mail | grep "/usr/bin/mail"
This will show you that "/usr/bin/mail" belongs to the mailutils package.

Cheers,
W
