Put hostname in email in powershell script

I have a script what is working to send email from a powershell script but I need it get the local host's name and include it in the email. $Server name should be the local host name. Here is what I have that is not working.

$serviceName = " Application Server";
$Servername = $env:computername
$serviceStatus = (get-service "$serviceName").Status;

if ($serviceStatus -ne "Running") {
    Send-MailMessage -From '$Servername_ServiceCheck@Company.com' -To 'me@company.com' `
  -SmtpServer 'smtp.company.com' `
  -Subject 'The Application Server Service is Not Running (PS Script)' `
  -Body  $("The Application Server Service is Not Running:   Status is $serviceStatus `n`
             Please Check the service and restart if necessary")`
}

You could try concatenating the From: email address into another variable:

$serviceName = " Application Server";
$Servername = $env:computername
$serviceStatus = (get-service "$serviceName").Status;
$email = $Servername + '_ServiceCheck@Company.com'

if ($serviceStatus -ne "Running") {
    Send-MailMessage -From $email -To 'me@company.com' `
  -SmtpServer 'smtp.company.com' `
  -Subject 'The Application Server Service is Not Running (PS Script)' `
  -Body  $("The Application Server Service is Not Running:   Status is $serviceStatus `n`
             Please Check the service and restart if necessary")`
}

-Subject "The Application Server Service is Not Running on Server $Servername (PS Script)" `

Thank You for your input. Neither suggestion worked but they were helpful in finding the solution.

Replaced

 Send-MailMessage -From '$Servername_ServiceCheck@Company.com' -To 'me@company.com' `

with

  Send-MailMessage -From $servername'_ServiceCheck@company.com' -To 'me@company.com'

FYI, if you used double quotes instead of single, your original code would work without concatentation.  Variables aren't expanded inside single quotes.
