Hello,
I'm trying to create a email vb script that I can call by arguments from other scripts to send out different email responses.  Here is my code so far but need  a little help in getting it functional.  Thanks for any help you can provide.

Set myMail=CreateObject("CDO.Message")
Const ForReading = 1

set args = WScript.Arguments
' Parse args
select case args.Count
case 0
    sVariable = args(0) myMail.Subject=("Test environment is now shutting down")
case 1
    sVariable = args(1) myMail.Subject=("Test environment is now online")
end select


myMail.From="email address"
myMail.To="email address"
myMail.Configuration.Fields.Item _
("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing")=2
'Name or IP of remote SMTP server
myMail.Configuration.Fields.Item _
("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver")="server name"
'Server port
myMail.Configuration.Fields.Item _
("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport")=25 
myMail.Configuration.Fields.Update
myMail.Send
set myMail=nothing




'To call for for example, arg1, then cscript //nologo emailscript1.vbs  ARG1

I use this for a reference http://www.paulsadowski.com/wsh/cdo.htm 

It looks like you are missing a the body.

myMail.TextBody = "This is some sample message text."

or

txtEmailBody="This is some sample message text."

myMail.TextBody =txtEmailBody


Are you having other issues?

Hi Padas,
Yes, I'm getting a error message.  It says, Error on Line 8, Char 25, Error: Expected end of statement.  Did I miss something?

I think you want to change

case 0
    sVariable = args(0) myMail.Subject=("Test environment is now shutting down")
case 1
    sVariable = args(1) myMail.Subject=("Test environment is now online")
end select

Open in new window

to
case 0
  myMail.Subject=("Test environment is now shutting down")
case 1
   myMail.Subject=("Test environment is now online")
end select

Yeah, I took it in a whole different direction and getting better results now.  Seems to be working now.

dim args(1)
dim myMail
Set myMail=CreateObject("CDO.Message")
myMail.Subject = WScript.Arguments.Item(0) & " environment is now " & WScript.Arguments.Item(1)
WScript.echo "first arg: " & WScript.Arguments.Item(0)

WScript.echo "second arg: " & WScript.Arguments.Item(1)

WScript.echo "subject: " & myMail.Subject
