    I have a .htm file generated every 1 hour from a source. I need a powershell script to send a mail with that attachment whenever it is run.

    Using Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Pls help
    TIA

    Have a look at the Send-MailMessage Cmdlet:

    C:\> Get-Help -Name Send-MailMessage -Full

    I agree with Christian. There is no value to adding the complexity of using the Outlook client into the mix. If you have an SMTP server in the environment anywhere you can do this fairly quickly. I have samples for Exchange 365, Google Mail, and Hotmail.
