Re: Notification on script error

Sorry, but sending an email from PowerShell has nothing to do with WinSCP.
Please, ask at an appropriate site, like Stack Overflow.
Or see for example

Notification on script error

I have a script that will download all the files with today's date. I need to send out an email notification when this script throws an error. I am new to scripting and cannot get these notifications to work. Please take a look and let me know my error.

# Load WinSCP .NET assembly

Add-Type -Path "C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCPnet.dll"

# Set up session options
$sessionOptions = New-Object WinSCP.SessionOptions -Property @{
    Protocol = [WinSCP.Protocol]::Sftp
    HostName = "test"
    UserName = "test"
    Password = "test"
    SshHostKeyFingerprint = "ssh-rsa 1024 test"
    Timeout = New-TimeSpan -Minutes 10

$session = New-Object WinSCP.Session

    # Connect

    $sessionOptions.AddRawSettings("SendBuf", "0")
    $sessionOptions.AddRawSettings("SshSimple", "0")

    # Set up transfer options
    $transferOptions = New-Object WinSCP.TransferOptions
    $transferOptions.FileMask = "*>=1D"
    # Transfer files
    $session.GetFiles("test/*.txt", "\\Test Scripting\*", $False, $transferOptions).Check()



if( $Error -eq 0 ){
    $FailMailParams = @{
        To = ''
        From = ''
        Port = '25'
        SmtpServer = ''
        Subject = 'Script Errors Out'
        Body = 'There was an error with the script!!'
