          b, body       Required. Email Body (string or full path to file name)

          help


Notes:
You can provide the SMTP server, port, username and password in the application configuration file rather than via command switches. Of those, the SMTP server is the only required parameter. If the port isn't provided, the default port of 25 will be used. The username and password values will only be provided if both values are present.

Logging, if enabled, lots to the Windows Application Event Log.

Email body will pull from a file if the file name is provided and the file exists on disk. If the file does not exist it will use a string value.

Multiple file attachments are supported if file names are separated by a comma.

Requirements:

  • .NET 3.5 Framework
