Task Factory is a software product created by Pragmatic Works. It provides many custom SSIS components which help developers creating SSIS packages become more efficient. And as we all know, when we are more efficient, we are more productive. In this nugget, I’m going to show you how to use the Advanced Email and SMS Task. Yeah, that’s right, I said SMS. You can even send a message to a mobile device on any carrier service or using POP3, IMAP or SMTP

Here are the key features from about this task:

  • Sends emails from within an SSIS package through SMTP
  • Inbuilt HTML editor for HTML email
  • Supports sending SMS messages
  • Template based email (template can be external file, variable, or direct input)
  • Allows use of User/System Variables as placeholders in the email body so variables can be automatically replaced when email is sent
