Simpler but not as simple as the first hint
Authored by: Bemopolis on Aug 29, '07 09:11:18AM
One way to send a file is to type

open -a Mail /path/to/file

This opens a new Mail message window with the file already attached.

For those as lazy as I am, you can create an alias in your .*rc for the open -a Mail part. In my case I send /path/to/file

We can rate the hints now, but I wish we could rate the comments too. The open -a Mail tip is great! To me, this is more intuitive than the Drag.app of the hint.

Good job!

open -a works for Eudora, too.

Lovely! Just added the alias to my .bash_profile, and I have much command line joy.
