Send email from the command line.

Syntax MAPISEND -u "profile" -p password -r recipient -s "subject" -m text message [options] MAPISEND -u "profile" -p password -r recipient -s "subject" -t text_file [options] options -i interactive login (prompts for profile and password) -c cc: list -f File Attachment - path and file name(s) -v generates verbose output (an 8 line summary of the message) "profile" is the profile name (user mailbox) of sender "subject" is the subject line "recipient" is one or more recipient(s) If more than one recipient - separate with ';' these must not be ambiguous in the default address book.

Mapisend requires MAPI - i.e the MS Outlook client needs to be installed.

Q290499 - programmatic access to Outlook email

Powershell: New-Object Net.Mail.MailMessage - Send email via SMTP

BLAT (freeware) - Send email via SMTP (avoids the need to install MS Outlook)

A command like START will send email but requires the user to press send.

Equivalent bash command (Linux): sendmail
