Windows 2012 Task Scheduler

Hi.  Windows 2012 no longer supports sending of an email in Task Scheduler therefore, I need to find a way to have an email generated when the server is rebooted.  Is this possible in Powershell and then call a powershell script on reboot?  Or perhaps a tool such as blat and  call blat?  Thx.

Solution is that Powershell has a sendmail cmdlet that works in Task scheduler.  Thanks to everyone for their assistance.

Can i possibly ask you a question. What is the reason you would like a server to notify you of a reboot? do you not have software such as solarwinds or SCOM systems?

Personally;  I would suggest you  have monitoring software, such as  PRTG, Spiceworks, Nagios, ManageEngine Opmanager,  Solarwinds,  WhatsUp, or SCOM, on  another server to detect the reboot.      What happens when the server begins to reboot,  but  does not come back online  --- accidental shutdown,  or hang while shutting down, instead of successful reboot?   Then  you won't get an e-mail, that's what.....

I believe you can move this  e-mail thing over to 2012 by creating a VBScript;  .VBS file in notepad, and  schedule the VBScript,  though.

Imports System.Net.Mail
Imports System.Net

Dim Dest As New System.Net.Mail.MailAddress("recipient@example.com")
Dim msg As New System.Net.Mail.MailMessage
Dim smtp As New System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient

smtp.Host = "mymailserver.example.com"

msg.body = "Your message here"
msg.From = New Net.Mail.MailAddress("sender@example.com")
msg.Priority = Net.Mail.MailPriority.High
msg.Subject = "Hello, there!"

msg.IsBodyHtml = False
msg.To.Clear()
msg.To.Add(Dest)

smtp.send(msg)

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Thanks for trying to save me some work but there is an issue with the code and it failed.  The reason we want to do this is a safety net or plan B in case notifications don't go out.  We had a server reboot but neither vmware nor Opsview caught the reboot.  But it's in the logs of the server.
