;  UseSendMail.sub - send file, string or stringlist as mail
; -----------------------------------------------------------
;
; AUTHOR: Frank Thommen, EMBL Heidelberg
; SHORTNAME (for variable names): mail
;
; PREREQUISITE: blat from http://www.blat.net
;
;
; PURPOSE: Send a mail using "blat".  The content of the mail
;          can be taken from
;
;            * a stringlist (each element will become a line
;              of the mailbody
;            * a string (this will result in a one-line mail)
;            * a textfile (the content will become the mailbody)
;
;          The mail subject is user-defined, while sender and
;          destination address are harcoded in this version.
;          Therefore this version rather qualifies for sending
;          status mails to a fixed address rather than being a
;          freely configurable mailer.  However this could easily
;          be achieved by adding more user-definable variables.
;
;
; USAGE:
;          Sub "%SCRIPTDRIVE%\lib\UseSendMail.sub"
;          Set $_mail.subject = "Your Mail Subject"
;
;          Set $_mail.msgtype    = "stringlist"
;          Set $_mail.msgstrlist = <some stringlist cmd>
;             or
;          Set $_mail.msgtype    = "string"
;          Set $_mail.msgstring  = "Hello, how are you?"
;             or
;          Set $_mail.msgtype    = "file"
;          Set $_mail.msgfile    = "C:\some\file.txt"
