Discussion:
Blat as a schedulled task in Windows

I have a BAT file that, when it runs from the command line, sends me an email.

However, when I run it as a scheduled task, it appears to have run successfully but I never get the email.

Any thoughts as to why this may be occurring?

Blat 3.0.0, Windows 7-64.

Thanks.

I do not have an answer at the moment, but you should try adding
"-debug -log C:\blat.txt" to find out what is actually happening between
Blat and your server. After your scheduled task runs, check the log file
for any errors, or for a "250 ok" message from the server after your message
is sent. Your log file should look similar to this from my system moments
ago:

I did. It does.

I fiddled a bit with the file, adding a cd to the directory where
blat.exe is, (I used full pathnames) and now it seems to be working.

No idea why Task Scheduler was balking.

Task Scheduler was probably not at fault. If you were running Blat 3.0.0
from a full path, then msvcr100.dll was not in your search path. Blat 3.0.1
will fix that, if you want to try it from the official release this morning.

So cd'ing to that directory will take care of the dll not being in the search path?

Greetings PJH,

Thank you for your suggestion about WinDummy: "Exercise a script without
running each of the external programs that it calls, to verify that the
external program will receive the correct command line arguments and be
called when expected."

Let me get a little more detailed here. I have a script (OK, a batch
file :-) on my wife's computer that calls two executable programs, one
to do a backup and another (blat) to email me the log of the results of
the backup program.

When I execute that script from a "DOS window" it works perfectly: the
backup is created and the log is emailed to me.

When that script runs as a scheduled task, only the backup is
successful. However, the blat debug log says it is successful but I
don't get an email.

Hence, my dilemma,

Have you checked your web-based email account for potential "spam" from your
wife's computer? Many ISPs provide web-based access to email, and they
provide a SPAM folder that your normal email client (Windows Live Mail,
Thunderbird, Outlook Express, etc.) will not download mail from. Just a
thought.......

When you don't quote the message you're replying to, it's hard to know
what you've read and what you haven't. Let me assume that you've read
everything I posted and then ask this:

Why would email sent from a scheduled task be diverted and one sent from
the command line not be?

Greetings Pete Holsberg,

It shouldn't.

That is why you rename WinDummy to Blat.exe, then use it
to temporally replace (or rename) the original Blat.exe
and run the batch file both from the command line and
windows scheduler.

The output in the WinDummy should be exactly the same.
This will verify your call.

Your problem could be nothing more than a simple typo

I must be especially stupid today. Maybe the loss of an hour of sleep?

Or perhaps I was not clear.

I have a single batch file.

It gets run from the task scheduler.

I run it from the command line by double-clicking its name in Windows
Explorer.

No typing involved.

Are you sure? If you have a typo in the PATH
you might be running another file or executable.
WinDummy will show you without a doubt you are calling
what you think you are calling.

I have never known a batch file to work different
depending on how it is called. Something else
is the issue here.

It's a batch file with a unique name that exists only in one directory.

Let's go this route. Run your batch file with this added to your Blat
line: -superdebug -overwritelog -log C:\blat.log

When your task completes, email that blat.log file to me directly so I can
check what might be going on. My home email address is chip dot programmer
at att dot net.

Something else to check, what user account is the task scheduler actually
using? Do you have Blat options in the registry for _that_ user, if you do
not specify everything with the command line?

We are all speculating here because you have not provided your command line
nor a debug output for analysis. It would help us help you if you posted
both of that information.

Lastly, download Blat 3.0.1 that I uploaded/released yesterday. This will
eliminate the need for msvcr100.dll, and remove one more item for
consideration.

Don't let frustration cloud your thinking. I don't particularly like how
Yahoo sends html messages, so I choose to respond with only what I deem
necessary. Should your email client be able to group responses, you should
have seen which messages I was responding to. If you're viewing them
through Gmail's web interface, I can't help you there because I do not use
Gmail.

Outlook.com requires a secure connection using SSL or TLS protocol. To get
around this, I use another program called stunnel from http://stunnel.org/
to provide the SSL / TLS portion. In this way, Blat is able to communicate
with email service providers, such as Outlook.com or Gmail.com.

If you use stunnel for SSL / TLS, then Blast must be told to use 127.0.0.1
as the SMTP server. Stunnel on your PC will listen to that IP address, and
open a secure connection to your actual SMTP server (Outlook.com) so Blat
can begin to communicate.

Getting stunnel installed is very easy, just answer some questions such as
your name and country, make sure that it starts with Windows, then edit the
configuration file to look similar to this list:

CAfile = cert.pem
cert = client.pem
client = yes
RNDfile = .rnd
sslVersion = TLSv1
fips = no

[outlook client]
accept = 127.0.0.1:28
connect = smtp.live.com:587
sslVersion = all
options = NO_SSLv2
protocol = smtp
--

With stunnel listening on port 28,

is it

blat install 127.0.0.1 ***@myaddress

or should it be

blat install 127.0.0.1:28 ***@myaddress

or is it

blat install 127.0.0.1 ***@myaddress * 28 *

I use blat with Foxpro 9 and Windows 10, so no issues there.



Test everything at the command prompt first. And you may find with W10 that 32bit and 64bit issues arise.



There are 64bit and 32bit versions of blat. I’d try both.



Also, is there an SSL issue?

to the point that I can send the first email from the dos command line.
my work environment is windows 10 and once I am successful I  intend to send emails directly from my FoxPro 9 application.
In the meantime I shall certainly try out the 64 bit version of blat. I was using the 32 bit version which has failed upto now.

I don’t remember the details, but seems there are 32 bit and 64 bit registries, and the settings can end up in the wrong one.



I’d download both 32 and 64 bit versions, and rename them to blat32 and blat64.



Then run the install on blat64 and test



If your ISP requires secure login ( mine doesn’t if I connect via their network, but does if I connect via a different ISP ) then you need to also use stunnel . Configure stunnel for the email, and configure blat to use the stunnel port you chose

It will be 127.0.0.1:28 (assuming stunnel is running on same computer from where blat command is executed). You can also say localhost -port 28

With stunnel listening on port 28,

is it

blat install 127.0.0.1 ***@myaddress

or should it be

blat install 127.0.0.1:28 ***@myaddress

or is it

blat install 127.0.0.1 ***@myaddress * 28 *

Outlook.com requires a secure connection using SSL or TLS protocol. To get
around this, I use another program called stunnel from http://stunnel.org/
to provide the SSL / TLS portion. In this way, Blat is able to communicate
with email service providers, such as Outlook.com or Gmail.com.

If you use stunnel for SSL / TLS, then Blast must be told to use 127.0.0.1
as the SMTP server. Stunnel on your PC will listen to that IP address, and
open a secure connection to your actual SMTP server (Outlook.com) so Blat
can begin to communicate.

Getting stunnel installed is very easy, just answer some questions such as
your name and country, make sure that it starts with Windows, then edit the
configuration file to look similar to this list:

CAfile = cert.pem
cert = client.pem
client = yes
RNDfile = .rnd
sslVersion = TLSv1
fips = no

[outlook client]
accept = 127.0.0.1:28
connect = smtp.live.com:587
sslVersion = all
options = NO_SSLv2
protocol = smtp

It will be 127.0.0.1:28 (assuming stunnel is running on same computer from where blat command is executed). You can also say localhost -port 28

thanks chip and mike
I was able to install and execute STUNNEL with the configuration file suggested by you.
I got the following output from STUNNEL
what could be the problem?

blat -h has it. At least in my version 3.25

BTW Google Guru says the following for how to setup your email client if using outlook.com server to send out emails (bold, red, big font by myself):

Overview: Outlook.com Server Settings
Outlook.com POP3 servers
Incoming mail server imap-mail.outlook.com
Incoming mail server port 993 (SSL required)
Outgoing (SMTP) mail server smtp-mail.outlook.com
Outgoing (SMTP) mail server port 587 (SSL/TLS required)

Hi,





I too use Blat extensively in my VFP9 Apps, using windows10 Pro 64 bit.





I use the 32 bit version of Blat because VFP9 is 32 bit, although my
computer is 64 bit, although I have never needed to use Stunnel (because of
the servers I have come across have not needed it). Also I don't use the
install option, as my programming sets everything and saves the install on
the client computer.





If you need any more help with other parts of your application, let me know.

thanks alan looks wonderful that blat can run without stunnel and even without install.
could you send me the code segment which would enable me to send email via my FoxPro program  along with basic instructions
It would help extend my capablility as well as the overall usefulness of visual FoxPro.
