    UNIX Mail and a quick opinion poll.

    Im sorry if this isnt the right forum to put this but i wasnt to sure wich one it belonged in.

    My question is for everyone thats used Linux UNIx BSD and what not, ok, everyone thats used it for a while prolly knows the mail command. Well, sometimes i use my Windows machine when im doing homework, i was wondering, is there a program for Windows, that i can download that will act like the mail command of Linux?

    i know this is kind of confusing because im really not sure how to explain it and im sorry, but, for example (ill give an example because i know im not explaining this to great)

    When im using my Linux box, if i dont have the GUI loaded or if have a terminal up, i can type :

    mail

    and check mail from local users, or:

    mail -s "subject" adress@mail.com
    message
    and send mail...i know its a lil odd but i kinda like how i could mail someone without loading anything, does anyone know of a program that does this on Windows?

    what your looking for is the good ole mailx mailer.... I havent seen a port to win to speak of but I am almost certain one is out there, you may look at cygwin as I know theres a mailx package for that.....
