Does anyone have an example of using Blat in a Python script. I would like to get a fail or success notify when the script finishes. I'm sure there are better alternatives but with my limited skill i figured blat would be the easiest to master.

thanks,

Blat allows you to send emails directly from the ommand line, so for a simple success notification, the following should work from within Python:

import os
os.system('blat.exe - -f from@example.com -to to@somewhere.com -s Subject -body "Success!" -server smtp.example.com:25 -u username -pw password ')

Please note there is also a "subprocss" library which is a more sophisticated way to execute command-line programs, but I sense your needs are rather simple and os.system should suffice.
