So I have a script that does an rsync backup job for me and the last line does: cat $LOG|mail -s "rsync status" adavis@localhost This works fine and from a terminal I see a message saying I have new mail and can see the mail after typing "mail". The thing is, I want to read this email from Thunderbird (or Entourage if I must). I don't want a work-around such as a mail relay or /etc/aliases setup. I want a GUI mail client to check my local system account email. Anyone know how to make this work?
