    Email program that auto mails a file?


    Using Ubuntu Linux, and running a program from a remote location that is creating a file. I need an Linux program that can periodically email that file to me with no prompting at the remote location - just every so often, automatically emails the file. Know of any app that can do that?

    I believe you should be able to set something up using cron to handle that chore:

    Hope it works for you.

    sendmail is usually installed by default. Postfix will do the same thing. Create a cron job and use sendmail or postfix to attach the file to the email and away it goes

    This is a decent primer on sendmail.
