Sending a test email

You can send a test email by using the ‘mail’ command. The first parameter of the
mail command is the destination email address. After entering a subject, enter the
message body. A ‘.’ on an empty line signals the end of the message.
For example:
comma@comx1:~$ mail info@farsouthnet.com 
Subject: Test email 
This is a test email. 
This is line 2. 

Cc: test­user@farsouthnet.com
