  • no its still not working all configurations remains the same .This worked before "df -h | mail -vs "free space " "but with  new version this is not.

    need a replacement for this .

  • You could always copy /bin/mail from an older system and add it to the path or your scripts directory (and give it execute permissions via chmod +x mail).  This has worked for me.
