      Hi,

      I'm trying to send and e-mail containing some variables values and text on it... That's what I was trying:


      $LogVerification = Get-EventLog -LogName System | Where {($_.EventID -eq 55) -and ($_.Message -like "*corrupt*") -and ($_.TimeGenerated -gt (Get-Date).AddDays(-1))} | select TimeGenerated,EntryType,Message | ft -Wrap -AutoSize
      If ($LogVerification) {
      $emailFrom = "admin@organization.com.br"
      $emailTo = "vandrey@organization.com.br"
      $subject = "Events 55 found on SRV-AD"
      $body = "There were NTFS error records on event viewer of the server.`rPlease check those records.`r$LogVerification"
      $smtpServer = "192.168.0.20"
      $smtp = new-object Net.Mail.SmtpClient($smtpServer)
      $smtp.Send($emailFrom, $emailTo, $subject, $body)
      }
      else {
      Write-Warning "No event found!"
      }

      But it had a lot of "microsoft.powershell.commands.internal.format.formatstartdata" type of information...
      Then I tried using this:


      $body = Format-List -InputObject $LogVerification | Out-String

      It shows the correct value, but I can't add text to send a message with it?

      The issue is with the the $LogVerification variable. As shown in your code, it is an array. Convert it to a string and you will be good to go.

      ,Format-Table -Wrap -AutoSize | Out-String
