I read about mail in linux and I installed mailutils to send mail in command lines.
at first when I pressed ctrl+D to end the mail body, mail text ended. but the problem was that it didn't send mails at all. now moreover than that problem, even ctrl+D also does not work and after ctrl+D, I must use ctrl+C to end the mail. I dont know exactly what mistake I did during this time that now my ctrl+D does not work.
hence 2 questions:
1- when I want to send email is mailutils enough or I have to install any other service or do I need something like ssmtp?
2- why ctrl+D does not work but at first it was working? on a virtualbox it works but i dont want to reinstall my ubuntu. is there any program locking my ctrl+D or stopping me after pressing ctrl+D? if there is a program that I should uninstall? how can I recognize it?
thanks so much
in mail log the common error is:
aran@arvb:~$ df -h | mail -s "disk space report" email@example.com
the body of email
^D^D^D^D^D^D^D^D [^D does not work]
