Sometimes I run into situation where I need to email a file, and I am lazy to open a browser, login to my email account, and then attach file and send it.
If you are like me, then mutt is a neat command for sending emails from terminal quickly =P.
The code looks like below:
echo "email body" | mutt email@example.com -s "email subject" -a "file-to-be-attached"
So, if I need to email a file code.zip (in the same directory), I would use the following:
echo "Code for Project" | mutt firstname.lastname@example.org -s "project c" -a "code.zip"
Check out man mutt for more information. Hope it helps out.
