send emails using linux command

# echo “Sending an attachment.” | mutt -a backup.zip -s “attachment” calvin@cnh.com

This command will send a mail to calvin@cnh.com with the subject (-s) “attachment”, the body text “Sending an attachment.”, containing the attachment (-a) backup.zip. Like with the mail command you can use the “-c” option to mark a copy to another mail id.
