I've got some backup jobs running weekly and would like to have the log files sent to me automatically via email so I don't have to manually check them.

On a Windows system, is there a tool that I can use that will allow me to send an email via Gmail SMTP from a command prompt?

Gmail can be used for sending mail by any mail program and from any network.

Some command-line mail products for Windows are:

SendEmail
mailsend
(I have no first-hand experience with these products.)
