    I'm making a PowerShell program that involves having a pop-up box appearing at a specific time, while the script is running and when the alarm goes off, alert box will show up onto the screen. For the alarm below, I want it to not only to pop-up, but I want to send an email message after exiting the pop-up. How would I do that?

    function New-Alarm
    {
    param(
    [Parameter(Mandatory=$true,HelpMessage="Enter a time in HH:MM format (e.g. 23:00)")]
    [String]
    $time,

    [Parameter(Mandatory=$true,HelpMessage="Enter the alert box title (e.g. Alert!).")]
    [String]
    $alertBoxTitle,

    [Parameter(Mandatory=$true,HelpMessage="Enter the alert message.")]
    [String]
    $alertBoxMessage
    )

    do
    {
    Start-Sleep -Seconds 1
    }
    until((get-date) -ge (get-date $time))
    # Play system sound:
    [system.media.systemsounds]::Exclamation.play()
    # Display message
    [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("System.Windows.Forms")
    [System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox]::Show($alertBoxMessage,$alertBoxTitle)
    }

    New-Alarm -time "12:00" -alertBoxTitle "Alert!" -alertBoxMessage "Send an E-Mail to someone"

    I want the email script right here after "Send an E-Mail to someone" pops up onto the screen.

    Use the Send-MailMessage cmdlet.

    Can you show me how to do that? I want to use Gmail to send the message to the receiver.
