Does anyone know of a program (with GUI) that can email the contents of a folder via SMTP via a schedule?

I'm not certain that a think like this even exists...
But, if you can skip the GUI part I can whip up a PowerShell / BASH Script (based on the OS in question) to do that.
I just need some clarification on the meaning of "content" Do you mean mailing the names of the files in that folder? or do you mean actually mailing the entire content - mailing the content could be problematic as most server put a restriction on mail size.

Basically very small log files from a PABX call accounting program. It stores its logged data inside a folder. There is about 30 files which are <50KB in size and I was hoping to have something say email the entire contents of that folder hourly to an email address via our Office 365 service.

PABX is most commonly Linux Based, So based on that alone, I'd say that a GUI solution is probably out of the question.

But if you want mt to, I could write a bash script for you that you can then schedule to run hourly using a cron job.

Thanks for that. At this point I think I will abandon this project and manually check the logs as needed. Thanks for the offer.

That is up to you.
Should you change your opinion, me offer for a script still stands (It's not limited to Linux only, if the system is windows based, I can whip up a PowerShell script as well)
