    Just run this command:
    Code:
    mail -s subject name@hotmail.com
    Then type the message and end it with Ctrl+D (for EOF). If the other side supports encryption, sendmail will automatically turn it on.

    Yeah, naturally. The -s specifies the subject. The 'subject' that I wrote was just supposed to be a placeholder.
