This example demonstrates how to refer to DOS environment variables within message bodies so that the values held in the environment variables can be "expanded" into the message bodies on-the-fly.
This technique could conceivably work anywhere in the NetMailBot batch file, as long as the resulting values after "expansion" make sense within the NetMailBot command line.
NOTE: This also works directly on the command line.
Using this feature requires familiarity with DOS environment variables.
