As far as I know you can not send email through plain batch file. You need to use any third party tool to achieve this or you can write VBScript for this.

First you will have to download a dos mail sending program like postie.exe
Then create a batch file that will use postie. and last, schedule the batch file.

Postie is freeware see:

Here is the problem :
I will not be able to  install any software in my web hosting companies server as i said before,
they said, You will have to write a batch file , and put that batch file in schedule task from control panel

so without installing any thirdparty software , how i will be able to send mail by batch file ??
is not there any command that i can insert in batch file for sending email ??

you could use telnet.

Is there a reason why the email has to be sent from the webserver? What content will it have?

I would bet you could do what ever check your doin remotely and use what ever tool you want.

Hi yah sorry i was ill from last couple of day so i was away from PC

The reason behind is, i want to check our mailserver every 30 min that its receving emails or not to do some monitoring. thats all

if you can read this question of mine, its simlier to this :

May be you are right, i will not be able to sent email via batch file

but can i run a php script from a batch file ??
like when batch file will fire, actually it will fire a php script ??
