BATCH OR VB: SCAN HARD DRIVE FOR FILES, ZIP FOUND FILES, EMAIL ZIP FILE

I need a batch or VB script that will do the following:
   *Scan a hard drive for *.CFG files;
   *Zip those found files;
   *Email the zip file to an email address.

Any help would be appreciated!

Hello,

Something like this might work

Depending on where you are emailing from you may need to configure the smtp server with something like: SmtpMail.SmtpServer = "mail.your-domain.com"
Dim message_object, shell
 
Set shell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set message_object = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
 
Call shell.Run("cmd /c dir /B /S c:\*.cfg | zip -@ c:\zip_file.zip", 0, true)
 
message_object.Subject = "subject" 
message_object.From = "name@domain.com" 
message_object.To = "name@domain.com" 
message_object.TextBody = "Text" 
message_object.AddAttachment "c:\zip_file.zip"
message_object.Send
