This is a small case study to send an e-mail when a new file is received. The e-mail will contain the file name.
To send the e-mail we will use Blat. Get it and install it in c:\utils directory.

c:>blat -install mailserver.yourdomain.com youremail@yourdomain.com

Install FileNotify, set environnement and configuration

In this case we will install FileNotify and Blat in c:\utils directory and we will monitor c:\ftproot directory structure.

Make the two directories, copy FileNotify.exe in c:\utils and make FileNotify.txt with the following content.

; FileNotify sample
1,1,1,1,c:\ftproot,c:\utils\sendmail.bat %s

This sample watch c:\ftproot directory, recursively, one action at a time, and the action start sendmail.bat

Install Filenotify with the command c:\utils\FileNotify -install
Start FileNotify "net start filenotify".

Now let see what's in sendmail.bat

echo The new file is %1 > c:\utils\msg.txt
c:\utils\blat c:\utils\msg.txt -s "New file in c:\ftproot" -t youremail2@yourdomain.com

Customize this file with your parameters.

Let's test FileNotify

Ok, you are ready to test it.

For example open NotePad, type in some text, and save this new file in c:\ftproot\test.txt. You receive an e-mail with the name of the new file.
