How to attach a file using mail command on Linux

0 votes

I'm on a server running a Linux shell. I need to mail a simple file to a recipient. How to do this, prefereably using only the mail command?

UPDATE: got a good solution, using mutt instead:

$ echo | mutt -a syslogs.tar.gz admin@domain.org
