    Get-WinEvent -LogName $LogName -MaxEvents 1000 -EA SilentlyContinue | Where-Object {$_.id -in $EventID -and $_.Timecreated -gt (Get-date).AddHours(-24)} | Sort TimeCreated -Descending | Export-Csv c:\transfer\testexport.csv -NoTypeInformation

     

    Send-MailMessage -From [email protected]-To [email protected] -SmtpServer smtp.theirdomain.com  -Subject test export -Body $Body -Attachments $Path

     

    My assumption, probably incorrect, is that the $logname if left blank will gather all event viewer logs, or do I need specify Security, Application, etc for what I want.

     

    I should be able to set this up as a script to run on a scheduled task as well, if I’m not mistaken.

    disregard guys, I got it…

     

    Get-Eventlog -log application -after ((get-date).addDays(-1)) -EntryType Error, Warning | export-csv “C:\transfer\appevents.csv”

    Send-MailMessage -To [email protected]-From “[email protected]” -Subject “Application Events” -Attachments “c:\transfer\appevents.csv” -SmtpServer smtp.mydomain.com

     

    This works much, much better!

    You need to specify the log file name, as you have found out.

    Yep! Sure did! Luckily we only need the Application log, so that worked perfectly. As you know, to change what log is exported, just change the “-log application” to “-log system” etc…
