New version of Command line email is available for download. We have added support for Message-ID, and for backward compatibility -NOID command.
Febooti Hash & CRC v3.5 is available for download now. Febooti fileTweak Hash & CRC is freeware cryptographic hash value calculator that allows computing MD5, SHA-1, CRC32 and other popular hash checksums of files.

Febooti Command line email v5.0 is available for download now. We have made some new command line parameters and many improvements, including ability to use separate log file for email sending success/failure, added support for Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, updated OpenSSL and many more. See release history for more details.
A new version of Automation Workshop released. Version 1.2.2 fixes one rare and in the same time serious bug, where server machine in domain can run out of resources because Automation Workshop is spawning too many Service Agents. This can be observed using Windows Task Manager — multiple AutomationWorkshopAgent.exe programs are running under the same Session and the same user account.
As always updating is straightforward — run Setup program and follow onscreen instructions. It is recommended to backup everything (Tools menu -> Backup), and then stop Automation Workshop service before you proceed.
Febooti Command line email v4.1 is available now. Among updated OpenSSL libraries, we have made improvement related to iOS. One of our users have reported that iPhone uses CID image caching using CID from HTML email provided from email client. Checking relevant RFCs indeed confirmed, that image CIDs must be globally unique (unique in email itself is not enough). We switched to GUID, so chance of collision is almost impossible, even if all 7,000,000,000 of world population would send emails using our Command line email tool simultaneously.
Note to developers and users who use .eml files: If you develop similar software — that sends emails that can land in the iOS/iPhone inbox, then extra care should be taken, because if possible attacker can guess your next image CIDs, she/he can take advantage of that fact and poison iOS email client cache with some SPAM images that will appear in your sent HTML email message.
We implemented automatic backup using our own Automation Workshop actions, namely, Zip files Action, Export registry Action, and a couple other. This means that Automatic backup is acting like regular Automation Workshop task — it writes in Service log file (success and failures), it can be easily extended or changed, users can even implement they own backup tasks easily.
Also, it is interesting to note that our internal automated test cases have just passed more than 1500 items. We are using a special kind of test driven development. Of course if we split all test cases into smaller peaces, there will be far more than 15,000 items, but in our metrics it is more that 1500, and each of the test case has taken [on average] more than 1 hour to build. So it is approaching a one year of full time work (WYE).
And one more thing, in 753 days Extended support for Windows XP will end. For our users this means, that after this date we will stop releasing fixes for Automation Workshop on Windows XP. Windows Server 2003 support will end about year later. Both Windows XP and Server 2003 are based on the same codebase, so most probably Automation Workshop will run on Windows XP a year after Extended support ends.
