Something like "mail" or "mailx" would do it, I guess, but only if
configured to use the correct SMTP server (maybe ~/.mailrc does that?).
I'm using a GNU/Linux box with Alpine configured to use gmail's SMTP
I'm also not sure of how "mail" or "mailx" handles attachments, but Alpine
has a command-line argument for that, and other cool command-line
arguments for dealing with lists of files.
Are there other tools that do these things (handling attachments)
