Appendix A Examples for sending email

In this appendix we review some example scripts that send email using Bash. All the scripts are in the MBFL distribution under the examples directory.

First we examine plain scripts (making no use of MBFL) to understand the basics of how to handle the SMTP protocol and how to “talk” to a process in background.

Then we see the documentation of a complex script,, which we can use to send email with plain or encrypted connections.

Finally we see how to use the GNU Emacs interface to the script, sendmail-mbfl.el. sendmail script emacs.
