How to send an email from yahoo SMTP server with PowerShell? Authentication is required.

PowerShell V3

Thanks in advance


<a href="https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh849925.aspx" rel="nofollow">Send-MailMessage</a> has a -Credential parameter that takes a pscredential object. I would use a hashtable to store and splat the connection arguments:

$MailArgs = @{ From = 'mindaugas@yahoo.com' To = 'someone@domain.com' Subject = 'A subject line' Body = 'Mail message content goes here!' SmtpServer = 'smtp.mail.yahoo.com' Port = 587 UseSsl = $true Credential = New-Object pscredential 'mindaugas@yahoo.com',$('P@ssW0rd!' |ConvertTo-SecureString -AsPlainText -Force) } Send-MailMessage @MailArgs


in case somebody looking for google smtp using MailMessage

[System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("System.Net") [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("System.Net.Mail") [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("System.Net.Mail.MailMessage") $mail = New-Object System.Net.Mail.MailMessage $mail.From = New-Object System.Net.Mail.MailAddress("XXXX@gmail.com"); $mail.To.Add("XXX@XXXX.com"); $mail.Subject = "Place Subject of email here"; $mail.Body = "Place body content here"; $smtp = New-Object System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient("smtp.gmail.com"); $smtp.Port = "587"; $smtp.Credentials = New-Object System.Net.NetworkCredential("XXXXX@gmail.com", "password"); $smtp.EnableSsl = "true"; $smtp.Send($mail);
