Missing mail command on Amazon’s Linux

This post was published 7 years, 5 months ago. Due to the rapidly evolving world of technology, some concepts may no longer be applicable.

I recently noticed that the mail command is not available by default on the latest version of Amazon’s Linux AMI (v2011.09). This functionality is available in the mailx package, which can be installed with the following:

yum install mailx
