I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Thank you.  I was hoping to do this directly in the .bat file without having to employ Powershell or VBS or any other scripting, but directly in the .bat file.

I second blat - as suggested by Shaun - I'm using it as well (no points please).

There is no way to do this just in native DOS commands in a BAT file, sorry.  You either need to use some other scripting language (I often execute a small VBS script from the BAT script) or use a utility like BLAT to do the mail sending.  There are a small handful of these command line email utilities, if you are interested in those search around previously answered questions on this site.  If you can't find them let me know I'll point you towards some.  But I don't want to go too far if you can't use either utility or other scripting languages.
