ShellSend 2.0
Send emails from the command line

ShellSend is a compact free tool which allows you to send text emails from the command line, batch files or scripts.

The program's syntax looks like this:

shellsend.exe [to address] [from address] [mailserver] [mailserver port] [use SSL (0 or 1)] [username] [password] [email subject] [body-filename] [body-text]

("Body-filename" here refers to an optional file which contains the body text of the email. ShellSend can't send binary files as an attachment.)

In practical terms, you'll enter something like this:

shellsend.exe "to@host.com" "myname@domain.com" "smtp.mydomain.com" 25 0 "username@domain.com" "mypassword" "Test" "" "This is my body message!"

Here ShellSend is sending a message titled "Test", containing the text "This is my body message!", to "to@host.com", using your email address "myname@domain.com", through SMTP port 25, without using SSL, logging in as "username@domain.com" with the password "mypassword".

If authentication isn't required then you can safely leave the username and password fields blank, like:

shellsend.exe "to@host.com" "myname@domain.com" "smtp.mydomain.com" 25 0 "" "" "Test" "" "This is my body message!"

Enter a command to test this, and ShellSend tries to access the mail server as you've specified. If all is well you'll see "Message sent successfully"; if there's a problem, the program will pause for a while before timing out. Check your settings carefully and try again.
 

Verdict:

We'd like an option to include binary attachments, but otherwise ShellSend makes it reasonably easy to send emails from scripts and the command line.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
