I've created a .bat file. When i run it, it works and sends email. However, when I run it from windows "scheduled tasks", it does not send email. Any idea what could be causing this?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Yes if you can run the bmail.exe fine as the user you are logged in as you should run the scheduled task as the same user. You can set the job to run in a different context then the system account by following these steps:

Right click on the scheduled task
choose properties
Fill in a username in the Run As box
Click the set password button and set the password
Run the scheduled task

That should solve your problems.
