Hi All,

i'm trying to use Blat in order to email something from server to myself every day.  
So I've got the blat.exe in system32 and I typed the following:

blat -install smtp34.on.he.com myemail@me.com    

then i hit enter but.... i need the following file to be attached everytime with the email and the file resides in the c:\log\file.txt

How do I attach this file in there? What do I use in command prompt to make sure that computer will attach it and send it to me, I've tried:

blat -to myemail@me.com -attacht file.txt

it is not working....

i'm so confused now...

blat -attach c:\log\file.txt -to myemail@me.com -u "username" -pw "password"

the -u and -pw are only if you need to enter authentication to send mail (SMTP authentication)

the password is actually only if you need to enter authentication to send email, it has nothing to do with accessing the file.

Try this:
blat -attach c:\log\file.txt -to myemail@me.com

and post the output back here.  That will help troubleshoot the issue.

If you get an error while sending the mail then do this using the password and username for your email server:
blat -attach c:\log\file.txt -to myemail@me.com -u "username" -pw "password"

I think what you need to do is enter the full path to the file you want attached.

This is an example of how we mail notifications about our backup using variables.   Don't know if it helps.

blat %NOTIFICATION_HEADER_PATH%\operator_worksheet.txt -t %EMAIL_TO% -i %EMAIL_FROM% -s "(Print 1st) MEDIA MANAGEMENT PRINTOUT - Operator Worksheet"

We use the set commands in a .bat file. for example: set NOTIFICATION_HEADER_PATH=j:\nsr\scripts\notification_headers
