This seems to work fine except for one small problem, I keep getting the
--"process tried to write to a non-existent pipe"--
when I run it the CFG file from a DOS window, and the mail message is sent.
But, I get no mail message sent when the process is run in the background.

contents of SendMail.cmd

d:\mrtg-2.7.4\run\postie -host:host.domain -to:user at domain
-from:perfmon at host.domain -s:"%1 threshold exceeded" -msg:"%1 has broken %2
- currently at %3"

Does anyone out there have any suggestions.  I am baffled right now. 
I really wish this section was documented better.
