Substitute for 'mail' in RHEL 7


I am looking at RHEL 7 for the first time and the 'mail' and 'mailx' commands seem to have disappeared. I have many scripts that use these commands. What are RHEL 7 users typically doing now to send mail from the command line. (I find 'sendmail' not very user friendly.) If it matters, I am using postfix with Cyrus.

Thanks for any suggestions,

Try looking at the package "mailx" or "procmail"?

It also implies you don't have sendmail installed either, though you may not need that depending on your use of mail (local services sending you mail? like cron jobs).
