To send a message to one or more address, mail can be invoked with arguments which are the names of people to whom the mail will be sent. You are then expected to type in your message, followed by an <control-D> at the beginning of a line. However, using the following syntax one can send email easily:

mail -s ‘Subject’ [email protected]


# Subject
