I got this powershell script that consists of a Query Part and an Email Part, independently the two parts work fine, but jointly I'm having problem getting them to work properly, in the Query part, I'm saying that if a network file is generated with today's date, send out an email saying "success", else send out an email saying "failed".

that's the extent of it, please advise.
Thx

Provide the code, please.  It'll be much easier to point out what's required and where.

$dir = "C:\FileLocation\FTPVerification"
$latest = Get-ChildItem -Path $dir | sort LastWriteTime | Select-Object -Last 1
#$latest.name
$File = "C:\FileLocation\FTPVerification\*.csv"
IF($File.LastWriteTime -eq $currentdate)
{Write-host "$latest This EPL File was generated and FTP'd to Vendor today"}
Else
{"No EPL was generated today, please run the process manually"}
# Configure SMTP server
$smtpServer = "10.x.x.x"
$mailMessage = new-object Net.Mail.MailMessage
$smtpObj = new-object Net.Mail.SmtpClient($smtpServer)

# Set email parameters
$mailMessage.From = "email@company.org"
$mailMessage.ReplyTo = "email@company.org"
$mailMessage.To.Add("vendor@vendor.org")
$mailMessage.subject = "EPL FTP Status"
$mailMessage.body = "This   $latest   EPL File was generated and FTP'd to CTS today"
$mailMessage.Attachments.Add($attachment)

# Send email
$smtpObj.Send($mailMessage)
$attachment.Dispose()

Here's my take on it.
# Set common email parameters
$MessageParams = @{
    From = "email@company.org"
    To   = "vendor@vendor.org"
    Subject = "EPL FTP Status"
    SmtpServer = "10.x.x.x"
    }

$dir = "C:\FileLocation\FTPVerification" #If you're just interested in .CSV files, modify this path.
$latest = Get-ChildItem -Path $dir | sort LastWriteTime | Select-Object -Last 1
$currentdate = (Get-Date).Date
If ($latest.LastWriteTime -gt $currentdate)
{
    Write-host "$($latest.name): This EPL File was generated and FTP'd to Vendor today" -ForegroundColor Yellow
    $MessageParams["Body"] = "Success.  An EPL file was generated and is attached."
    $MessageParams["Attachment"] = $latest
}
Else
{
    Write-Host "No EPL was generated today, please run the process manually" -ForegroundColor Yellow
    $MessageParams["Body"] = "Failed"
}

Send-MailMessage @MessageParams

Open in new window


I prefer to utilize the Send-MailMessage cmdlet vs. using .NET classes unless it's not possible.
