mailsend is a simple command line program to send mail via[SMTP] protocol. Long time ago, I needed to send a piece of alert mail from a program in a networked Windows machine, but could not find a simple program like this installed. So I wrote one. You might find it useful as well. The program does not use any config file and I plan to keep it that way. From version 1.17b1+, IPv6 is supported in all platforms. Suggestions, bug reports are always welcome. If you have any question, request or suggestion, please enter it in the[Issues] with appropriate label.

To install mailsend, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install mailsend

To upgrade mailsend, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade mailsend
