Powershell script sending email (Gmail)

I have a simple powershell project to do file copy and sync task. Can I get email notification if task has issue, like error message or copied file name. The answer is yes, we can us Net.Mail.SmtpClient to send out email in powershell.

Below is the script:

function status_notification{
param( [string]$body,[string] $subject ,[string] $emailTo)
$email =”automated@youremail.com”
$psCred = New-Object System.Net.NetworkCredential(“$email”, ” your email password “);
$smtpServer = “smtp.gmail.com”
$msg = new-object Net.Mail.MailMessage
$smtp = new-object Net.Mail.SmtpClient($smtpServer,587)
$smtp.EnableSsl = $true
$msg.IsBodyHTML = $true
$msg.From = “$email”
$msg.To.Add(“$ emailTo”)
$msg.Subject = “$subject”
$msg.Body = “$body”
$smtp.Credentials = $psCred
