Let Windows 2008 Task Scheduler send e-mails to multiple recipients

From Windows server 2012 on, the feature in Windows Task Scheduler to send e-mail has been deprecated and removed. Use Powershell or other tooling to send emails from scheduled tasks.
# This PowerShell script SendMail.ps1 is designed to show how to send
# mail using PowerShell because Windows Task Scheduler is not able to
# send mails any more.
# The mail is send to two persons and cc-ed to another person.
# Remember you can not add multiple persons in one $to string, every
# person must be seperated in a seperate string :-( Array's also do not
# work. Power-dumb Send-MailMessage command.

Only for Windows Server 2008

As you probably know it is possible to send e-mails from the Windows Task Scheduler. Just specify From and To e-mail addresses, a Subject and body text. Do not forget to fill in the SMTP server. If your task logs it's actions in a log file, you can attach the file using the Browse button.
If you want to specify multiple recipients for the e-mail, you can do so by separating the To e-mail addresses by a Semicolon (;).
