Hi Experts,

I have attached a code .

This code checks for the latest log file and emails it to me as an attachment.

I would like to change this script so that instead of attaching log file it should email me the contents . I receive 100's error every day so its hard for to open each and every log file.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks
#E#Email Function
Function Email {
Param($Attach)
$smtp = new-object Net.Mail.SmtpClient($smtpServer)
$MailMessage = new-object Net.Mail.MailMessage($emailFrom, $emailTo, $subject, $Body)
Foreach ($msgAttach in $Attach) {
$Attachment = new-object Net.Mail.Attachment($msgAttach.Fullname)
$MailMessage.Attachments.Add($Attachment)
}
$smtp.Send($MailMessage)
}

#File Params
$LogFile = "D:\log.txt"
$MonitorDirectory = "\\logserver\logs"
#Email Params
$EmailFrom = "my@my.com"
$EmailTo = "my@my.com"
$subject = "New Error Files detected"
$body = "Attached are new Error files which have been detected "
$smtpServer = "xxxx"

#Script begins
$SentFiles = Get-Content $LogFile
$NewFiles = Get-ChildItem $MonitorDirectory | Where {$SentFiles -NotContains $_.FullName}
if($NewFiles) {
Foreach ($NewFile in $NewFiles) {
	$FileName = $NewFile.FullName
	Email $NewFile
	Add-Content $LogFile $FileName
}
}

Try the following..
#E#Email Function
Function Email {
Param($body)
$smtp = new-object Net.Mail.SmtpClient($smtpServer)
$MailMessage = new-object Net.Mail.MailMessage($emailFrom, $emailTo, $subject, $Body)
#Foreach ($msgAttach in $Attach) {
#$Attachment = new-object Net.Mail.Attachment($msgAttach.Fullname)
#$MailMessage.Attachments.Add($Attachment)
#}
$smtp.Send($MailMessage)
}

#File Params
$LogFile = "D:\log.txt"
$MonitorDirectory = "\\logserver\logs"
#Email Params
$EmailFrom = "my@my.com"
$EmailTo = "my@my.com"
$subject = "New Error Files detected"
#$body = "Attached are new Error files which have been detected "
$smtpServer = "xxxx"

#Script begins
$SentFiles = Get-Content $LogFile
$NewFiles = Get-ChildItem $MonitorDirectory | Where {$SentFiles -NotContains $_.FullName}
if($NewFiles) {
Foreach ($NewFile in $NewFiles) {
	$FileName = $NewFile.FullName
	$body=Get-Content $MonitorDirectory+"\"+$NewFile.name
	Email $body
	Add-Content $LogFile $FileName

I too got nothing until I changed the foreach loop a little:
 
Foreach ($NewFile in $NewFiles) {
	$FileName = $NewFile.FullName
	[string]$content = (Get-Content -Path $FileName -Force)
	Email $content
	Add-Content $LogFile $FileName
}
