powershell help needed

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

Foreach ($msgAttach in $Attach) {

$smtp.Send($MailMessage)

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

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
}
