I would like to use blat to send email via a scheduled command file, but for security reasons I do not want to embed my network login and password in the command file. Is it possible to save my username and password in a profile with the blat "install" command or the blat "savesettings" command? Or any other way? I am new to blat and having trouble with this, I would appreciate any help. Blat looks like a very useful tool.

    The following command, all on one line, worked for me:
