This example demonstrates how to use the watch directory features of NetMailBot. Specifically, a directory is watched for new files, when new files are found, they ZIP compressed then sent to the recipient as an one email attachment. After the email is sent, the files in the directory being watched are deleted.
NOTE: You should change the email addresses in the batch file to your own email address(es) before running a test.
Prepared Example Files
The -watchdir parameter in NetMailBot uses full paths. We have assumed a particular path as shown in the batch file contents below. Therefore, download this file to C:\tmp on your hard drive or edit the -bodyfile parameter to reflect wherever you unzip the archive.
The archive contains one file and a directory containing three more files:
Batch File Contents
This is the content of the batch file:
netmailbot -to email@example.com -from firstname.lastname@example.org -server localhost -watchdir "c:\tmp\watch" -watchdelete -zip
