<press enter> and type the text message to send then <enter> and ctrl+d keys to send the message.
The full postoffice command line syntax is described on these

Postoffice is a FULL sendmail replacement so the SENDMAIL IS SUPPORTED!!!

Additional sendmail compliant commands are:

mailq -

It must be run each time you edit /etc/aliases file.

The sendmail syntax allow you to set subject CC: BCC: and headers:
