    Apr 16 2018 | 9:38 am
    Hi,
    can anyone help me out with converting the following applescript to osascript message for shell:
    tell application "Mail"
    set theSubject to "Subject"
    set theContent to "Content sentence"
    set theAddress to "dynamicemailaddress@gmail.com"
    set theAttachmentFile to "Macintosh HD:Users:xyz:Desktop:dynamicaddress.png"
    set msg to make new outgoing message with properties {subject:theSubject, content:theContent, visible:true}
    tell msg to make new to recipient at end of every to recipient with properties {address:theAddress}
    tell msg to make new attachment with properties {file name:theAttachmentFile as alias}
    delay 3
    send msg
    end tell
    ---- Thanks

      As You don't have any changable arguments in that script, easier would be to save the script as app, and execute it from max. You even don't need shell to execute it, a message like : ; max launchbrowser "file:///Users/xyz/Desktop/My-Script.app"
      would do.

      This is a bit complex thing, I don't use Mail.app to test it , but here is the rule : every tell must be enclosed like -e 'tell to do whatever' mind You the punctuation ' here is ascii 39 and all items in applescript wich need to be enclosed by quotation marks must look like this : \"TextEdit\" examples : osascript -e 'tell application \"TextEdit\" to activate make new document at the front' osascript -e 'tell application \"TextEdit\" to activate' -e 'tell application \"System Events\"' -e 'tell process \"TextEdit\" to click menu item \"Close\" of menu \"File\" of menu bar 1' -e 'end tell' Your next problem is passing attatchment path to Mail
      From what I know shell itself accepts slash boot paths like: /Volumes/Big-Hd/My-Stuff/textfile.txt if You send it path like : Big-Hd:/My-Stuff/textfile.txt it will not accept it. But You are passing the path to Mail via shell, so You have to experiment and see what works. Here is a patch that might work, please check it all I am not sure if I typed everything correctly
