Syntax

Send-SMIMEEmail [parameters]

Remarks

This cmdlet is the SMIME enabled equivalent of SENDEMAIL. In addition to implementing a standard SMTP client as specified in RFC 821, the cmdlet can sign and/or encrypt messages in a PKCS envelope.

To send a message, set the Server, To, Subject, From, and Message parameters.

The CertStoreType, CertStore, CertPassword, and CertSubject parameters specify the signing certificate.

The RecipientCertStoreType, RecipientCertStore RecipientCertPassword, and RecipientCertSubject parameters specify the encryption certificate.

Additional recipients can be set with the CC and BCC parameters. To specify multiple recipients, in the To, CC, and BCC parameters, simply specify the destination email addresses separated by commas.

One or more attachments can be added by setting the Attachment parameter. HTML Messages may be sent by setting the MessageHTML parameter.

The CertStoreType, CertStore, CertPassword, and CertSubject parameters specify the decryption certificate.

The SignerCertStoreType, SignerCertStore SignerCertPassword, and SignerCertSubject parameters specify the recipient's public certificate used for signature verification.
