This script works but errors if the file it is reading is empty.

How can i make the email conditional on the file not being empty.

 $Line = Get-Content E:\MonitorFolder\PingResults.txt
   
  Send-MailMessage -From 'Lost_Network_Connection_16@company.com' -To 'me@company.com' `
  -SmtpServer 'smtp.company.com' `
  -Subject 'Lost Network Connection' `
  -BodyAsHtml `
    -Body  ($Line -join "<br>")
