Subject: Hello
Kamusta kana? sana ok ka/// :)

Cc: <Press ENTER KEY>

You need to type . (dot) to send an email.

To send contains of file (such as /var/log/messages) as mail body then use following command:

$ mail -s 'Subject here' [email protected] < /var/log/messages

Please note that above command will NOT route an email if you do not have properly configured MTA/mail server. and check your spam folder for paid services like gmail for the mail might end up there
