Troubleshooting Question

Change this Powershell script to look at specific path for the distribution list.

Last Modified: 2020-09-26
I would like to change this script so that it look at C:\DistList\ to look up the email distribution list...

$username = "email1@yahoo.ca"
$password = "Password"
# Invokes the Send-MailMessage function to send notification email
   $splat = @{
      From =         'email1@yahoo.ca'
      To =         Get-Content -Path (Join-Path $PSScriptRoot 'List.txt')
      SmtpServer =   'smtp.mail.yahoo.com'
      Subject =      'This is a test'
      Body =         'This is also a test from a script'
      BodyAsHtml =   $true
        Attachment = (Get-ChildItem $PSScriptRoot | Where-Object {$_.Extension -eq ".pdf"}).FullName
      UseSsl =      $true
      Port =         "587"
      Credential =   New-Object -TypeName System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -ArgumentList $username, ($password | ConvertTo-SecureString -AsPlainText -Force)
   Send-MailMessage @splat
