Linux/bash: using mutt to send a file as an email attachment (via: Stack Overflow)

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2014/08/21

Just in case I need this again:

None of the mutt ones worked for me. It was thinking the email address was part of the attachemnt. Had to do:

MacBook Air on 10.7 (Lion) and Retina on 10.8 (Mountain Lion) won’t work as they are WiFi only, and WOL does not work over WiFi.

On 10.7 and up it might not work on a Mac Mini Server either, as Apple Introduced Dark Wake.

I used these tools to send WOL packets: Read the rest of this entry »
