Command Line e-mailing

Ever wanted to send a quick email but then though, “nah.. cba to open my inbox right now”?

Now you can send emails via command line! It doesn’t have to be installed though you could do so if you please. I give you Blat!

Here is a simple example from the documentation:

@echo off
:::::::::::::: Lets set some variables ::::::::::::::
set [email protected]
set subj=-s "Test Blat"
set server=-server localhost
set x=-x "X-Header-Test: Can Blat do it? Yes it Can!"
set debug=-debug -log blat.log -timestamp
::::::::::::::::: Now we run Blat!  :::::::::::::::::
blat %0 -to %eMail% -f %eMail% %subj% %server% %debug% %x%
