    Logically you should configure a mail server... you bash script will supply the mail to you mail server (wich must be connected to internet), and it will send the forward the email for you...

    Configure sendmail isn't a joke, and I've never tried... but my friend you it for pooling mail, and the server can connect to internet send all mails to your provider...

    Investigate on it.
    When using Windows, have you ever told "Ehi... do your business?"
