Read: In the name of thy Lord Who createth, Createth man from a clot. Read: And thy Lord is the Most Bounteous, Who teacheth by the pen, Teacheth man that which he knew not. Nay, but verily man is rebellious That he thinketh himself independent!. Lo! unto thy Lord is the return. (Sura Alalaq 96:8)

Mailx command can be used to send email through the gmail smtp server. For example the following command can be used:


mailx -s "Memory usage on server is more than 70%. Please check!." -r "reply_email" -S smtp="smtp.gmail.com:587" -S    \
smtp-use-starttls -S smtp-auth=login -S smtp-auth-user="gmail_address" -S smtp-auth-password="gmail_password" -S \
ssl-verify=ignore recepiant_email < /tmp/mail_body.txt
In the above command the "gmail_address" needs to allow access from insecure devices. This link explains how to do this
