Send Email With Powershell 2

This is an extended Powershell script that will allow you to send an email based on my original article Send Email With Powershell. With that said, this script has been extended to allow for input parameters and SMTP authentication. The input parameters allow the script to be called from other powershell scripts.

[string]$attachment = "")

$emailSmtpServer = "10.10.15.25"
$emailSmtpServerPort = "25"

$emailFrom = "SRV Automation <your@from.email>"
$emailTo = @($to)

$emailAttachment = New-Object System.Net.Mail.Attachment($attachment, 'text/plain')

$emailMessage = New-Object System.Net.Mail.MailMessage( $emailFrom , $emailTo )
$emailMessage.Subject = $subject
$emailMessage.IsBodyHtml = $false
$emailMessage.Body = $body
$emailMessage.Attachments.Add($emailAttachment)

$SMTPClient = New-Object System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient( $emailSmtpServer , $emailSmtpServerPort )
$SMTPClient.Credentials = New-Object System.Net.NetworkCredential("your_smtp_user", "your_smtp_pass");
$SMTPClient.Send( $emailMessage )
Note: this script can called from any powershell script using the following code below.
'C:\Admin Tools\EmailAdmin.ps1' "tech@youremail.com" "MySQL Backup Alert: Job Success (Server: DB01)" "Completed Successfully."
