    How to use postfix sendmail command?

    I was using the basic exim4/sendmail on my lappy to send basic emails from my small server system. I recently revamped my server and installed postfix and courier, and removed exim4. I was used to using sendmail to send emails (it's terminal based) and i was wondering what the postfix equivalent of sendmail is, and how to use it.
    OH NOES!!! I HAZ CRASHED SERVER!! WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU DO THAT?!?! CAUSE ITS FUNNY!!!!
    Running either 7.04, 8.04, 8.10, 9.04, it varies.

    $ mail -s "test message" joe.soap@example.com
    Yadda, yadda.

    Remember that last dot.

    The 'mail' command uses the 'sendmail' command which Postfix provides for convenience.
