Create dynamic Mail signatures via fortune
Authored by: gdanko on May 06, '04 12:33:29PM

How about you write this script...

/path/to/fortune | /bin/mail -s "Your subject here" recipient@domain.tld

Then cron it for whatever frequency you like... This will accomplish the same thing with no user intervention necessary. :)

That sends an email to whoever with a fortune at defined intervals.

I don't think the original poster wants to send random quotes to one person every 5 minutes. He wants to use a random quote as part of his signature.

See further down for another way of accomplishing this.
