    Default "mail not found"

    Dear all
    I have been asked to get automysql installed to backup our MySQL databases and then send the files to an admin via email.
    Although I have used AutoMySQL before on an Opensuse11.3 machine, we're now on 12.1 and I am getting the error "mail not found".
    Sure enough, if I drop to the CLI and type mail, I get "mail: command not found".

    This is 12.1 x64 minimal (if that makes any difference) and I have tried to find mail using Yast but to no avail.
    Please can someone spare a few moments to help out?


    Thanks for reading, I hope someone can help!
    Regards

    it may not, but on my machine
    Code:
    which mail
    yields /usr/bin/mail

    and a search in YaST on "mail" with only a searching with in the "RPM
    Provides" checked, i see the package "mailx" provides /usr/bin/mail (and
    also provides /bin/mail)..

    so, i GUESS installing (or reinstalling) mailx might help...maybe.

    You may also need postfix installed and configured.
