Topic "sendmail setup"

Author Message

First off, I'm not a coder... so please bear with me. I'm working on a radio application where a new program replaces an old program on the serve. I've successfully been able to automate this process using WinSCP with Windows Task Scheduler. Now, I am trying get set up to receive email confirmations that my automation successfully completes so I don't have to go to the server and verify every time.

I would like to get sendmail to do this... but I'm stuck on installation. I am using a Windows 7 system. The Sendmail instructions say to "copy sendmail.exe and sendmail.ini to \usr\lib on the drive where the unix application is installed." That does not make sense to me. I find no such directory on my system. Is there such a directory for Windows based systems? I'm confused.

What I really need to know is where I should place
1. the sendmail folder
2. sendmail.exe and sendmail.ini

I sure would be grateful if someone could point me in the right direction.

Thank you

Just ignore that instruction and place the file anywhere you want (e.g. along with winscp.exe).

The instruction is there only for ("about" section):
it is intended to ease running unix code that has /usr/lib/sendmail hardcoded as an email delivery means.

And you do not need that as you will be executing sendmail.exe directly.

I have documented this:

Thanks. I've give it a try.
