Script: AIX Mail With Encrypted Attachments

This is a script that can be used to send a couple of predefined files as encrypted attachments. Very useful for sending secure reports. Also note that the password needs to be sent separately to the receiver.

# Function to send mail
# Args:
# 1: FROM_ADDRESS

# 5: Space seperated list of files to attach
mailAttach () {
  (cat ${4}; for k in ${5}; do uuencode $k ${k##*/}; done) | \
      mailx -r ${1} -s "${3}" "${2}"
}
 
# Start Script
echo "Compressing and securing files before transmission..."
echo
echo "Enter zip-file password when a password is requested, this password should be sent to email receiver ($TOMAIL) via SMS"
(cd /tmp; \
  zip -e secured-file-`date +%d%m%Y`.zip \
    file1.xls \
    file2.xls \
    file3.xls \
    file4.xls; \
    cd -)
 
echo "Sending reports to $MAILTO by mail..."
fn_sendmail ${MAILFROM} \
        ${MAILTO} \
        "Email with encrypted attachments `date +%B` -- mail 1" \
        ${TEMPLATEDIR}/mailtext.txt \
        /tmp/secured-file-`date +%d%m%Y`.zip
 
echo "Finished sending mail"
exit

Note that you need a template which will be the body of the mail, it could look something like this:

Dear Sir/Madam,

Here are the encrypted files you requested.

Kind regards,
Sjoerd Hooft
