mail -s "subject" firstname.lastname@example.org < file.txt
but I never receive the emails.
Run the command:
ps aux | grep sendmail
That should list whether sendmail is, in fact, running
Check your mail logs:
If you see nothing of any use, edit the sendmail config file and set the logging to debug level
Also, are you just testing from the server to the server? Or are you trying to email to and from outside the server?
