FTPMAIL

E.2 FTPMAIL

FTPMAIL is a mail server available to anyone who can send electronic mail to, and receive electronic mail from, Internet sites. Any company or service provider that allows email connections to the Internet can access FTPMAIL.

You send mail to ftpmail@online.oreilly.com . In the message body, give the name of the anonymous FTP host and the FTP commands you want to run. The server will run anonymous FTP for you, and mail the files back to you. To get a complete help file, send a message with no subject and the single word "help" in the body. The following is an example mail session that gets you the examples. This command sends you a listing of the files in the selected directory, and the requested examples file. The listing is useful if you are interested in a later version of the examples.

Subject:
reply-to username@hostname  (Where you want files mailed)
open
cd /published/oreilly/nutshell/bash
dir
mode binary
uuencode
get examples.tar.gz
quit
.

A signature at the end of the message is acceptable as long as it appears after "quit."
