OPENEML command

When using -OPENEML command, the message is loaded from EML file rather than composed from information provided through other command line parameters. EML file alone suffices to provide email headers and message contents that will be displayed to actual recipient.

It is possible to use rich message formatting features of email apps that support standard .eml files. Such apps are Microsoft Live Mail, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, TheBat and others. Just prepare message and save it to .eml file, and later use OPENEML parameter in Command line email.

To send .eml file, provide TO and FROM address for actual sending session, as well as SMTP server and authentication credentials.

Command syntax:
  • febootimail -OPENEML email.eml
  • febootimail -OPENEML "C:\mail messages\email.eml"

At the recipients email client, the message will be displayed exactly as it is provided in EML file. TO and FROM fields will be displayed from the EML file, even if actual message sender and recipient differ.

C:\>febootimail -SERVER server.smtp.com -FROM john@sender.com -TO jack@example.com -OPENEML email-file.eml

Received email will display the date and time listed in EML file, not date and time when message is actually sent. Also, sending EML file overrides other information provided (e.g. subject, message text, attachments, etc).
