The following script works fine. However, if I add the following, it returns expected result. Any idea ? How can I add a heading in front of the message ? Tks

unexpected result
--------------------------
$Body = "Location:" + $Body + "`n" + $Body1

Location            
@{Name=backup_2014_09_15_230003_8368484.bak; LastWriteTime=09/15/2014 23:00:14}

Original Result
---------------------
Name                                                                                LastWriteTime                                              
----                                                                                     -------------                                              
backup_2014_09_02_230001_6570526.bak              2/9/2014 23:00:10                                          
backup_2014_09_03_230001_4905028.bak              3/9/2014 23:00:10      



Original Script
--------------------
$Body = Get-ChildItem \\nas\Backup\HR2 -Recurse |
   Select Name,LastWriteTime | sort-object -property LastWriteTime


$Body1 = Get-ChildItem \\nas\Backup\HR2E -Recurse |
   Select Name,LastWriteTime | sort-object -property LastWriteTime

$Body = $Body + "`n" + $Body1

$Date = Get-date -format "dd/MM/yy HH:mm:ss"

Send-MailMessage `
      -Body ($Body | Out-String) `
      -Subject "Backup Folder - $Date" `
      -From db01@abc.com  `
      -To it@abc.com `
      -SmtpServer exdag.abc.com

I guess, you are converting the $Body to HTML before sending email. If so, try with..
$Body = @()

$Body += Get-ChildItem \\nas\Backup\HR2 -Recurse | 
    Select Name,LastWriteTime | sort-object -property LastWriteTime


 $Body += Get-ChildItem \\nas\Backup\HR2E -Recurse | 
    Select Name,LastWriteTime | sort-object -property LastWriteTime

What's the purpose of  $Body = @() ?

Do you mean the default format for $Body is a HTML text format ?

One more check, the heading appear only once instead showing under each file lists. How does it appear like this ?


Name                                                        LastWriteTime                                              
----                                                        -------------

$Body = @() - Means setting $Body as a array object..

Do you mean the default format for $Body is a HTML text format ?
If you didn't use the ConvertTo-HTML as I mentioned in your last question, then the email will be sent as plain text and format may not look good.

To list the folder information separate, you can use following option..
$Body = @()

$Body += Get-ChildItem \\nas\Backup\HR2 -Recurse | 
    Select Name,LastWriteTime | sort-object -property LastWriteTime |
		ConvertTo-HTML -Property Name,FullName,LastWriteTime -head $a -body "<H3>HR2 Folder Information</H3>"


 $Body += Get-ChildItem \\nas\Backup\HR2E -Recurse | 
    Select Name,LastWriteTime | sort-object -property LastWriteTime |
		ConvertTo-HTML -Property Name,FullName,LastWriteTime -head $a -body "<H3>HR2E Folder Information</H3>"

Open in new window


Also replace -Body ($Body | Out-String) ` with -BodyAsHtml ($Body | Out-String) `

You can use the following head..
$a = "<style>"
$a = $a + "BODY{background-color:White;}"
$a = $a + "TABLE{border-width: 2px;border-style: solid;border-color: black;border-collapse: collapse;}"
$a = $a + "TH{text-align:left;border-width: 2px;padding: 0px;border-style: solid;border-color: black;}"
$a = $a + "TD{border-width: 2px;padding: 0px;border-style: solid;border-color: black;}"
$a = $a + "</style>"
