Sending emails using VBScript

To do so, follow the sample code shown below. To use the code as-is, just alter the configuration parameters by providing the from address, to address, subject, body, and SMTP server information. Optionally, you may also provide a path to a file that you want to attach to the email. Usually SMTP port number is 25; if you are unsure, leave this parameter untouched and it will probably work at the default value of 25.

dim fromAddress, toAddress, subj, body, smtp, attach, smtpPort

' Configuration '

' Required parameters
fromAddress = "my@email.address"      ' The from email address
toAddress = "recepient@email.address" ' The to email address
subj = "Email Subject"                ' The subject of the email
body = "Put a message here!"          ' The body message of the email
smtp = ""              ' Name of the SMTP server you wish to use

' Optional parameters
attach = "c:filename.txt"            ' Optional file you may wish to attach to the email
smtpPort = 25                         ' SMTP port used by your server, usually 25; if not provided, the script will default to 25

' End Configuration '
