Command Line Email

The email client allows sending mail directly from Windows command line (DOS prompt). Attach an unlimited number of files to emails, use rich formatted HTML or simple text email, and use CC or BCC, all over a secure SSL connection. Use febootimail in Scheduled Tasks, CGI scripts, and VBA, from virtually any software.

Corporate users can authenticate against the Microsoft Active Directory and send mail via Exchange Server, while others can use mail server authentication secured with industry-standard SSL data encryption, such as Gmail. Febootimail also supports STARTTLS secure communication and most of the other authentication methods, including LOGIN, PLAIN, NTLM, and CRAM-MD5.
