Windows batch file to trigger e-mail notification.

Last Modified: 2013-11-25
Hi,I am a newbie to windows scripting.I haven't written a single one by myself yet.Now I want to write a script which would accept an arguement and based on that would need to read a file and send e-mails to a list of stake holders.
The arguemnt could be a character string of 5 to 10 size,say clientD  OR a folder path.The file to be read can be either a notepad or an excel file.The file would have records of type(client ID,E-mailID).
Then upon the checkin event in the version manager tool,this script should run and send a notification to the id-s.
The e-mail client is lotus notes,I would need to create a sample script in my windows pc (windows xp/SP3) to test the file reading and e-mail part and then should hand over that to the version manager administrators.
Could someone help me to figure out how to do this ?
