Re: cygwin-email utility clipping attached zips

I spoke with Dean as well, the author, and he advised the same. I wrote a little script that accomplishes what I need, and wanted to share it, pasted in line below:

export file=""
for x in *.pdf; do
        export file=$file,$x
echo $file
email -s test -a $file < sample.txt

Hope someone finds some use for it.

I'm using it send attachments, but I would like to be able to send
multiple attachments using a wildcard expression.  Unfortunately when I
specify something like *.pdf , it only grabs the first PDF file within
the directory.

my sample command line is something along the following:

$ email.exe -s testing -a *.pdf < body.txt

This grabs files1.pdf but not files2.pdf or any other file.

Is anyone using email.exe to send multiple 'unknown' attachments?

You need a '-a' before /each/ of the filenames to attach. Otherwise it'll think they're recipient names.

cheers, DaveK
