Generic send file through the mail command?

Is there a generic sendmail command that will send a file to a given location in Windows/NT 4, using Exchange 5 for the mail program.  I would like to do this through either a java application or applet.  Thanks.

sendmail.exe will do the trick, you'll find it in the exchange resource kit and on TechNet. (Maybe it's an actual part of exchange 5, don't know that) Here's how to do this (from command line) and the drawbacks:

First, create a new exchange-client profile, using the properties of the inbox. Make sure this profile has at least a valid postbox assigned to it (microsoft exchange server properties)

Now, the command to send a file to somebody will look like this:
SENDMAIL -u profile name -p password -r recipient(s) [-c copy recipient(s)] [-s subject] [-m message] [-f file attachment(s)] [-v] [-?]

The drawbacks are:
This will not work from any random machine. The used profile MUST be installed on the local machine in order for sendmail to work.
And, maybe more serious, you'll be creating a security gap, because the password for the used profile (and thus the password for the used account) is plain visible when using this command from any readable file.

Hope this helps,
M.
