a mail workalike that works with Apple Mail

Introduction

Like using mail from the commandline? Don't want to set up sendmail on your laptop? Maul is for you.

Maul attempts to be as similar as possible to the standard mail utility, but uses the accounts you already have set up in the standard Apple Mail client.

Installation

curl -O https://raw.github.com/oldpatricka/maul/master/maul && mv maul /usr/local/bin/ && chmod +x /usr/local/bin/maul

Usage

$ maul user@example.com
Subject: I'm using maul!
Hey bud,

I'm sending this mail from the command line. But I didn't set up sendmail
or any of that noise.

Rad, huh?

.
EOT
$

You can also pipe stuff to maul:

$ tail -n40 /var/log/app/everything.log | maul -s "Messed up log" user@example.com
