I have a batch file that telnets to a SMTP server, and emails error codes on some SQL backups.

Everything works except where you're supposed to send a . on a line by itself.

It doesn't seem to recognize the '.', so it doesn't get to the quit command.

If I watch the script, I can put the . in with the keyboard, but it defeats the purpose of having a scheduled task.

Without getting into a 3rd party software, would anybody have any suggestions?
