I have compiled a quick script that allows you to send files from a server in zip format. It enables you to email files (or even whole directories) as opposed to downloading them via SFTP or other means.
yum install mutt zip
Put the script below under
Email any file or directory from Linux
Now you can invoke it like this:
mail-it.sh filename email@example.com
You will get email with ZIP file attachment of the file or directory specified. Fast and convenient!
You can also provide third argument to add some descriptive text to your mail message:
mail-it.sh filename firstname.lastname@example.org "Here is the file you requested!"
#!/bin/bash # requires: yum install zip mutt # invoke: mail-it.sh filename email@example if [ -z "$1" ] then echo "
is required" exit 1 fi if [ -z "$2" ] then echo " is required" exit 1 fi file="$1" to="$2" msg="$3" TFILE="/tmp/$(basename $file).zip" rm -rf $TFILE zip -jr $TFILE $file echo "$msg" | mutt -a "$TFILE" -s "ZIP of $file" -- $to rm -rf $TFILE echo "Mail sent."
