Doing mail from Terminal is not as hard as you may think.

To send an email from your computer just open Terminal and type the following command:

Replace “Subject” with the subject of the mail messages that you are sending. You’ll then replace “recipient@example.com” with the email address of the recipient of the message. Finally, to write your message, include the <<EOF, do not forget the enter, then type your message using as many newline characters as needed. When you are ready to stop writing and send your message, type “EOF” followed by the enter key.

This will cause OS X to relay the message to your ISP’s SMTP server, and send the message to the recipient that you specified.
