I need some scripts that would say any IIS or SMTP logs older than XYZ days to be moved to ABC folder and send me an email with the data copied

I don't remember exactly the folder paths for IIS or SMTP logs...but this PowerShell script (version 2) should be easily modified to your environment. Also, I'm not sure whether you want to move or copy; I assumed copy but you can change Copy-Item to Move-Item if moving file is your goal

$Now = Get-Date 
$SourceFolderPaths = "C:\iislogs\*","C:\smtplogs\*" #change folder paths
$TargetFolderPath = "C:\newpath\" #change folder path
$LastWrite = $Now.AddDays(-45) #change days threshold
$LogFile = "C:\Temp\filecleanup.log" #change log file path and name

if(Test-Path -Path $LogFile -PathType Leaf)
	Write-Output "Removing log file $LogFile"
	Remove-Item $LogFile | Out-Null
} else {
	Write-Output "Creating log file $LogFile"
	New-Item -ItemType file $LogFile | Out-Null
Write-Output "========= Starting file cleanup ==========" >> $LogFile

# for multiple file extensions:  *.txt,*.gif,*.html
$Files = $FolderPaths | % {Get-Childitem $_ -Include *.log } | 
Where-Object {$_.LastWriteTime -le $LastWrite}

if($Files -ne $null){
	$Files | % {
        Write-Output "Copying file: $($_.FullName) to: $TargetFolderPath" >> $LogFile
        Copy-Item $_.FullName -Destination $TargetFolderPath | Out-Null
} else {
	Write-Output "There no files to copy" >> $LogFile
Write-Output "========= Ending file cleanup ==========" >> $LogFile

Send-MailMessage -From "Admin <admin@noreply.com>" `
	-To "John Doe <john.doe@domain.com>" `
	-Subject "Log file cleanup task" `
	-Body "This is an email notification." `
	-Attachments $LogFile `
	-SmtpServer "YOURSERVER.domain.com"
