Usage: mailme message
This is a useful function if you want to get notified about process completion or failure. e.g.
mailme "process X completed"
This will email firstname.lastname@example.org a message with the body: "rsync done" when there are no processes of rsync running. This can be changed for other uses by changing $(pgrep rsync) to something else, and echo "rsync done" | mailx email@example.com to another command.
