SQL Server – Send email using Powershell

31 January,2012 by Tom Collins

This article explains how to send an email through Powershell. 

 Very useful if you have a requirement to automate your scripts and send notifications .

 The example is calling the SmtpClient Class , which is part of the .Net Framework.

You can call a Function –  which makes your scripting   more modular.


$emailFrom = "[email protected]"
$emailTo = "[email protected]"
$subject = " Powershell Function calling an SMTP server"
$body = " : Send an email through SMTP in Powershell"
$smtpServer = "aservername"

#create a function
Function sendEmail([string]$emailFrom, [string]$emailTo, [string]$subject,[string]$body,[string]$smtpServer)
$smtp = new-object Net.Mail.SmtpClient($smtpServer)

#call the function 
sendEmail $emailFrom $emailTo $subject $body $smtpServer
