Current Version:  2.0

EmailAlert is a utility to quickly send an email.

EmailAlert is designed to send a preconfigured email, and can be used to scripts and other applications to alert you via email when a certain condition is met.  

For example, I personally use it in a script to notify me when a client's backup fails...


Run EmailAlert.exe to configure.

Run EmailAlert.exe -e to send email with the preset configuration.

Other command line parameters can override preset configuration, they are as follows:

-f FROM field (must be a valid email address on Vista/7, but on XP it can be pretty much anything believe it or not.)
-t TO field (email address)
-s Subject
-b Message Body

-x Place Time Stamp in message
-y Place Computer Name in message
-z Place current User Name in message

-m SMTP mail server
-u SMTP username
-p SMTP password
-l SMTP uses SSL
port number

Portable Use:


This program may be run from a flash drive, CD, or other portable means by simply copying EmailAlert.exe to your portable medium.  

Note:  Proper use may require the VB6 SP6 Runtime files from to be installed - most systems have these already, but if something isn't working properly, download them and try again.  When using the installer package, these files are installed if needed.  

system requirements:

EmailAlert is designed to work with Windows 2000 SP3 and up. It should also work on Server OSes and the Vista/7 with both 32 and 64bit flavors, but your mileage may vary!    

In addition to this package you are about to download, it may require the standard VB6SP6 Runtimes available from Microsoft as part of the VB6SP6 Redistributable package. These files: msvbvm60.dll, OLEAUT32.DLL, OLEPRO32.DLL, ASYCFILT.DLL, STDOLE2.TLB, COMCAT.DLL are installed with the application if needed, however you may need to pluck them from your system if using this as a portable app - just depends on what system you are running it from and whether it has the appropriate files in the system path.  

This application requires cdosys.dll which may or may not be part of a WinPE based boot cd.
