You can use it for adding attachment, found an example

Quote:
echo "Send the E-mail message..."
/usr/bin/mailx -s "${SUBJECT}" ${TO} <<-EOF
Hi,

This sample E-mail message demonstrates how one can attach
files when sending messages with the Unix mailx utility.

First attachment: SQL*Plus spool file
~< ! uuencode $SPOOLFILE `basename $SPOOLFILE`

Second attachment: mailx.ksh (this script)
~< ! uuencode mailx.ksh mailx.txt

Third attachment: /etc/passwd file
~< ! uuencode /etc/passwd passwords

Best regards

~.
EOF

echo "Done!"

Thanks,

/usr/bin/mailx -s "${SUBJECT}" ${TO} <<-EOF

in the above command why we need to use -EOF instead of EOF?

because here document definition is

<<anything
...
...
anything

"-" allows you to indent the here-doc with tabs (but not spaces).
The man pages for mailx describe "~<!"

Thanks Andrew.

i just tried couple of scenarios

1>>>

$mailx -s "HI" xyz@gmail.com<<-EOF
>hi
><tab>how are you?
>EOF

o/p

hi
how are you?


2>>>

$mailx -s "HI" xyz@gmail.com<<EOF
>hi
><tab>how are you?
>EOF

o/p

hi
<tab>how are you?

Do we have in mailx command, any option to send cc (corbon copy)??

Thanks.

1. Mail No attachment, body only -

mailx -m -s "Some Subject" somone@somewhere.com < file_for_email_body

2. Mail with attachement, no body -

ux2dos /path_to/some_file | uuencode some_file.txt | mailx -m -s "MAIL FROM Someone" someone@somewhere.com

3. Mail with attachment and body -

ux2dos /path_to/some_file | uuencode some_file.txt | mailx -m -s "MAIL FROM Someone" someone@somewhere.com < file_for_email_body

4. Mail with carbon and blind carbon -

mailx -m -s "Some Subject" somone@somewhere.com < file_for_email_body

(Note that this does not work with the -r option as it disables ~ commands.)
(The file_for_email_body should look like this - )
~c someone_to_cc@somewhere.com
~b someone_to_bc@somewhere.com
The remainder of this file can be the text body of the email.

5. Mail with multiple attachments and body (Leave out the 'This is all you get' if body not desired) -

mailx -m -s "Hello" someone@somewhere.com << END
`ux2dos /home/dlamar/.kshrc | uuencode /home/dlamar/.kshrc.txt`
`ux2dos /home/dlamar/.profile | uuencode /home/dlamar/.profile.txt`
This is all you get.
END
