Sending email with AHK

22 Apr 2017, 16:09

I've tried about a dozen scripts I found in various forums but I can't get any to work.

I need one specifically for Gmail but it can be any script that allows you to set the SMTP server, port, sender, receiver, subject/content and include an attachment file.

If you have one handy please enlighten me with your gift!

Thanks.

The first responders code requires outlook which isnt going to be possible. I tried the blat one too with this code and it was unsuccessful.

Code: Select all

SMTPServer                                      := "smtp.gmail.com"
SMTPUsername                                    := "[email protected]"
SMTPPassword                                    := "mypassword"
F      	                                        := "[email protected]"
To    	                                        := "[email protected]"
Subject                                         := "TEST1"
Body                                            := "TEST1"

run, blat -noh2 -serverSMTP %SMTPServer% -u %SMTPUsername% -pw %SMTPPassword% -f %F% -to %To% -subject %Subject% -body %Body%
I get this screen for about a minute:
Capture11.PNG
Capture11.PNG (45.3 KiB) Viewed 6160 times
Then it goes away and no email was sent.

Any ideas?

Thanks for your help.

Not sure if this isn't outdated. Make up your mind if AHK could be connected to it:

I've come to the conclusion that Gmail requires SSL and none of these scripts or Blat support SSL.

I've been trying the fix with Stunnel\Blat but also looking into the script with mailsend.

One issue is that the file no longer exists where the script leads to. I downloaded a different version here:
https://github.com/muquit/mailsend/releases

I ran it manually with this command:

mailsend.exe -to "myemail" -from "myemail" -ssl -smtp smtp.gmail.com -port 465 -sub "subject" -M "emailMessage" -q -auth-plain -user "myemail" -pass "mypass" -attach "test.txt",, Hide

And I get this error:

Still working on it, but if you can help let me know.

Thanks.

Hey - im a bit late to the party here, but i use this to automatically send emails whenever a user creates a quote for our internal company use.

Works good for me - just fill in with your server info, etc.

Code: Select all

pmsg 							:= ComObjCreate("CDO.Message")
pmsg.From 						:= "[email protected]"
pmsg.To 							:= "[email protected]"
pmsg.BCC 							:= ""   									; Blind Carbon Copy, Invisible for all, same syntax as CC
pmsg.CC 							:= ""										; [email protected], [email protected]
pmsg.Subject 						:= "Subject"
;pmsg.TextBody 					:= ""
pmsg.HtmlBody 					:= "Body"

sAttach   							:= QuotePath								; can add multiple attachments, the delimiter is |
fields 							:= Object()

fields.smtpserver   					:= "smtp server here" 							; specify your SMTP server
fields.smtpserverport   				:= 587									; 25
fields.smtpusessl      					:= False									; False
fields.sendusing     					:= 2   									; cdoSendUsingPort
fields.smtpauthenticate 				:= 1   									; cdoBasic
fields.sendusername 					:= "xxxxxxxxxxxxx"
fields.sendpassword 					:= "xxxxxxxx"
fields.smtpconnectiontimeout			:= 60
schema 							:= "http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/"
pfld 								:=  pmsg.Configuration.Fields

For field,value in fields
	pfld.Item(schema . field) 		:= value
pfld.Update()
Loop, Parse, sAttach, |, %A_Space%%A_Tab%
	pmsg.AddAttachment(A_LoopField)

pmsg.Send()
Lemme know if you have questions!

Thanks!

I get this error. I believe since gmail requires SSL.

Don''t think that will work, unless I'm doing something wrong.

Are you able to use another email client like Thunderbird? I just wrote up this very shoddy automatic email composer (doesn't send, because it doesn't use COM or anything, there's a chance of a typo).

Code: Select all

^7::
WinActivate, ahk_exe thunderbird.exe
Send ^n ; new email
WinWaitActive, Write: (no subject)
Sleep 250
Send !r ; gets to the fRom field
Sleep 250
Send {Down 10} ; scrolls to the bottom to prompt the dropdown to appear
Sleep 100
Send {End}{Up} ; selects the bottom option in the dropdown
Sleep 100
Send {Tab 3} ; moves to the To field
SendInput [email protected] ; the person I'm emailing
Sleep 100
Send {Tab} ; moves to the Title field
FormatTime, outputMcD, , MM/dd/yy 
SendInput %outputMcD% ; provides a Title
Sleep 100
Send {Tab} ; Move to the Body
Sleep 100
Send My Name ; populate the Body
return

Unfortunately Thunderbird is not an option.

Furthermore, I'm really trying to avoid any use of sending commands in that fashion.

I am open to a command based email service like Blat if it uses SSL, Blat doesn't :(

Hi I'm also trying to something similar like you. I have found a PowerShell solution.
This scripts creates email.ps1, runs it and afterwards deletes the .ps1 file.

The only thing I'm personally not happy about is, that the login name / password are stored in
a file, which is a security issue. Even though the file is deleted one second after
execution.

Hope this helps:

Code: Select all

#NoEnv
#Warn
#SingleInstance Force
SetBatchLines, -1
SendMode, Input

FileDelete, email.ps1 

SMTPServer				= "smtp.someprovider.com"
SMTPClient				= New-Object Net.Mail.SmtpClient($SMTPServer, 587)
SMTPClientEnableSsl 	= $true
SMTPClientCredentials 	= New-Object System.Net.NetworkCredential("[email protected]", "SomePassword");

EmailFrom 	= "[email protected]"
EmailTo		= "[email protected]"
Subject 	= "NSA hacktool"
Body 		= "Hi Marc, I'm glad to inform you my NSA hacktool is ready"

FileAppend, $SMTPServer = %SMTPServer%`n, email.ps1
FileAppend, $SMTPClient = %SMTPClient%`n, email.ps1
FileAppend, $SMTPClient.EnableSsl = %SMTPClientEnableSsl%`n, email.ps1
FileAppend, $SMTPClient.Credentials = %SMTPClientCredentials%`n, email.ps1
FileAppend, $EmailFrom = %EmailFrom%`n, email.ps1
FileAppend, $EmailTo = %EmailTo%`n, email.ps1
FileAppend, $Subject = %Subject%`n, email.ps1
FileAppend, $Body = %Body%`n, email.ps1
FileAppend, $SMTPClient.Send($EmailFrom`, $EmailTo`, $Subject`, $Body)`n, email.ps1
run, powershell.exe -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -File email.ps1

Sleep, 1000
FileDelete, email.ps1

You probably can save your password (slightly encrypted?) within the compiled scripts metadata or an AlternateDataStream. That way you wouldn't have to create an additional plain text file.

This one isn't working for gmail either. The powershell opens, but it's not actually sending the email.

I believe I had it working with gmail. What smtp port are you using?

I've tried all of them available to gmail, but 465 is the recommended.

For me it works in gmail with port 587.

You might have to turn this on:

Yes, above is the problem. When I turn it off, it doesn't work for me neither.

Is there anyway to include attachments to the email?

Yes I think so. Haven't had the time to test it through.
