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.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
