Default log file management

I would like to email /var/log/auth.log.n.bz2 log files to my personal email account for archiving and viewing.

Assuming there an easy way to do this from the root prompt, can someone share the syntax to accomplish this?

I posted a shell script called matts] at http://www.daemonforums.org/showthread.php?t=3480 which can send such a log as MIME attachment.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump

You can also use mailx/heirloom-mailx
From memory you can use % mailx -s mysubject -a myattachment.gz mymail@example.com
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
