NT console utility that sends the contents of a file in an e-mail message using the SMTP protocol. In early 1998, I wanted a way to bf4.exe- binary files quickly and reliably.

The closest thing I found was BLAT v1. 5, which would mail ascii files from the command line. From that version, I added modifications to allow mailing of multiple ascii or binary files as well. Christophe Henquin has added some other useful options — port specification, retry level, and multiple profiles.

Also, check out Getmail for Windows, which is a command line tool to automatically download mail, including the ability to automatically extract binary attachments. It’s the perfect companion to blat! As of October 1998, I have officially assumed responsibility for the maintenance of Blat. The most recent version compiled for intel is version 1. It was released on December 12, 2001. The most recent version compiled for Alpha is version 1. Please let me know if you can compile and provide me with a newer binary for the Alpha platform!
