Background Information

You may want to have cron job or a RightScript send yourself a custom email message to notify you of specific activities on the Server



RightScale provides a messaging, monitoring, and alert system which gathers Server statistics and you can create Alert Escalations to send you an email.  However, sometimes you may want to have a script send you an email if it has failed or a cron job that runs notify you if something isn't working.  To send a mail from a RightScale based Server you can use the following command in a script:

echo Custom email message body | mailx -s 'Message Subject'
