    I'm reading a book on "Linux Sendmail Administration." I haven't finished it yet, but I might advise you to find something similar if you're in a hurry to find an answer.

    From the mailto man page:
    Code:
           When you are done composing your message, you can cause it
           to be sent to the intended recipients by simply typing the
           end-of-file  character, typically CONTROL-D.  Depending on
           your option settings, you may also be  able  to  send  the
           mail by typing "." alone on a line, or by typing "~.".
