Hi, I want to use Windows Task Scheduler to send command line emails via Thunderbird.

I have found only: thunderbird -compose "attachment='C:\first.txt,C:\second.txt'"

This works. But I also want to include email to, subject, text body and send.

I have tried options like Blat. Blat works but not with gmail.com as they block it. So with Thunderbird installed locally I may be able to work around the new gmail restrictions.

Many thanks.

I strongly suggest you use a utility designed for this purpose. Thunderbird isn't, because it will still launch the compose window so that you can click Send manually. See https://stackoverflow.com/questions/45588952/how-can-i-compose-and-send-email-in-thunderbird-from-commandline and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1144493

Several options are featured here https://www.raymond.cc/blog/sending-email-using-command-line-useful-for-downtime-alert-notification/

Note that the Powershell cmdlet is now obsolete. SwithMail is my favourite of those tools, but you'll have to use an app password for sending via Gmail.
