    Automatic Email Notification

    I am looking for a way in SilkTest to automatically notify people via email (lotus notes) of the results of the test (*.res) file. As I see it, the difficulty in this is how I can get "user a" to run a script (say script1.t) and automatically send the results of that script (script1.res) to "user b" via an email all in one step or shall i say without user intervention.

    Its difficult because I cant include the code to do this within the script because it cant attach the result file until the script has finished.

    Re: Automatic Email Notification

    I am doing that right now using the command line interface of silk test. You can create a batch file that runs the test and also emails the results when it is finished. There is an email client on the web called "blat.exe" which should do the trick for you. It is really simple to use and to integrate into the batch file.

    Re: Automatic Email Notification

    I don't remember where I downloaded it from, but I just did a search on lycos with keyword "blat.exe". If you can't get ahold of it, I can mail you the executable. I don't believe it is a very large file.

    Re: Automatic Email Notification

    I found a site or two on blat. The site was sparce but it seemed to me that this is useful when you need to have the CONTENTS of a file displayed in an email. Maybe this is overkill for what I need. I just need a program that allows me to send an email along with an attached file.

    I prefer to send the orignal *.res file vs sending a text file or text message.

    Am i missing something? What are your thoughts?

    Re: Automatic Email Notification

    You can submit the contents in the actual email itself as well assend an attachment. I would write a simple text file with a basic message to copy into the body of the email and then attache the res file to it.

    Re: Automatic Email Notification

    Has anyone tried wrapping SMTP or POP3 functions in 4Test?

    I think that a 'Mail API' include file would be of great benefit and certainly speed up the testing of email applications.

    JOhn.
