Hi All,

I can't believe how long i was looking for a solution to my question before posting here and then almost instantly after i found something LOL.

Here is what i have used along with command.

I have used smtpmail from - Send E-Mail from the Command Line or Batch File

and even better... they even give a gmail smtp command example and it worked perfectly
SMTPMAIL.EXE password=mysecret ssl license=20110904ff4bb6de06366ba6cd414d69168b6bda subject="Hello via GMail!" body="This email was sent using the GMail SMTP server :-)"
Obviously i just changed the info in the command line for my gmail account

Didn't take me long to realize that the above method only works for gmail with the pro version which costs money (you get a 30 day trial)

however a little more search and found this vbscript that may be better if anyone is interested?

Const schema   = ""
Const cdoBasic = 1
Const cdoSendUsingPort = 2
Dim oMsg, oConf

' E-mail properties
Set oMsg      = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
oMsg.From     = ""  ' or "Sender Name <>"
oMsg.To       = ""    ' or "Recipient Name <>"
oMsg.Subject  = "Subject"
oMsg.TextBody = "Text body"

' GMail SMTP server configuration and authentication info
Set oConf = oMsg.Configuration
oConf.Fields(schema & "smtpserver")       = ""
oConf.Fields(schema & "smtpserverport")   = 465
oConf.Fields(schema & "sendusing")        = cdoSendUsingPort
oConf.Fields(schema & "smtpauthenticate") = cdoBasic
oConf.Fields(schema & "smtpusessl")       = True
oConf.Fields(schema & "sendusername")     = ""
oConf.Fields(schema & "sendpassword")     = "sender_password"

Command Line Response to smtpmail:

'smtpmail.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

Also, a search of the Windows folder found nothing called "smtpmail", but there were about 16 items containing "smtp".

[EDIT: Sorry, I should have read the link more carefully. "Smtpmail" is a downloadable application, not part of Windows.]
