SQL Server – Send email using Powershell

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.

 

#variables
$emailFrom = "JackVamvas@sqlserver-dba.com"
$emailTo = "dba@sqlserver-dba.com"
$subject = "SQLServer-DBA.com: Powershell Function calling an SMTP server"
$body = "SQLServer-DBA.com : 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)
$smtp.Send($emailFrom,$emailTo,$subject,$body)
}

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