I have a Win2k3 box that I need a command line mailer to automate the sending of a log file. While I did some searching and came across a variety of tools that might work, I was just hoping for specific recommendations for such a tool. Free and maintained is ideal, but will consider anything that works well and bug free. Any suggestions?

SendEmail is a lightweight, command line SMTP email client. If you have the need to send email from a command line, this free program is perfect: simple to use and feature rich. It was designed to be used in bash scripts, batch files, Perl programs and web sites, but is quite adaptable and will likely meet your requirements

msmtp is a really good command line SMTP client. I've been using it for quite a long time. For more information, read the manual.
