Hi

You can have a program like this: http://www.exclamationsoft.com/exclamationsoft/netmailbot/default.asp

Then, if you want, you can create a batch file using those commands.

Regards,

I can't connect to the link, But one of the problems is cant want a batch that will work on all computers on my network (all windows xp) and my network will not allow anyone to download programs.

Hmm, looks like the links isn't working right now--it was before. Creating these sorts of batch files is beyond my experience, so just hang tight and wait for someone :)

If you can not login telnet via batch script is there a trick you can do with the URL so that : "Start mailto:<to>?subject=<subject>^&body=<body>" Would make the email, but is there some thing you could do to send it ?

I did some poking around and everything I found referencing a batchfile generated email required the use of an email client such as outlook express or a command line emailer like Blat, GBMailer or Mailsend

Blat can be obtained from http://sourceforge.net/projects/blat
GBMailer can be found here http://www.gboban.com/
Mailsend is here http://www.mailsend-online.com/

Of the three, Blat is the only one that is free.

I found this on another forum  May help this is a copy of someone elses batch file for an application called - osusmtp

@echo off
setlocal
set SMTPSERVER=mail.domain.com
set FROMEMAIL=from@domain.com
set TOEMAIL=to@domain.com
set SUBJECT="Subject line"
set BODYMSG="Test in body "
set MAINDIR=c:\filedir
set COPYDIR=%MAINDIR%

:: Get current date.
for /f "tokens=1-4 delims=/ " %%i in ('date/t') do (

set DATE=%%l%%j%%k)

mkdir %COPYDIR%\%DATE%
xcopy /Y %MAINDIR%\*.* %COPYDIR%\%DATE%

for /f "tokens=1" %%i in ('DIR /A-D /O-D /B c:\filedir') do (set ATTACHMENT=%%i)

mailer.exe /zl %SMTPSERVER% /zt %TOEMAIL% /zf %FROMEMAIL% /zs %SUBJECT% /zb %ATTACHMENT% /zat %ATTACHMENT%;

del %ATTACHMENT%

The Discussion can be found at - http://www.computing.net/dos/wwwboard/forum/13786.html

bmail has worked well for me:
http://www.beyondlogic.org/solutions/cmdlinemail/cmdlinemail.htm
if you can download it from any pc, you could move it to your network on a floppy

in a batch file:
For /f "Tokens=*" %%a in (EmailAddresses.txt) do cmd /c bmail -s <ExchangeServerName> -t %%a -f <SenderAddress> -h -a "Message Subject" -b "Message Body"

the above is all one line, and sends an email to every address in EmailAddresses.txt
Rreplace anything in < > with the obvious.  

hmmm, why are you sending email from the command line in an environment where you can't do downloads <wink>
