Send a HTML email with PowerShell

There’s a simple one-liner (expanded onto multiple lines for clarity) in PowerShell that allows you to send an email with HTML content derived from a HTML file:

Send-MailMessage  -Subject "Test email" 
                  -To "recipient@contoso.com" 
                  -From "me@contoso.com" 
                  -SmtpServer mail.contoso.com 
                  -BodyAsHtml (Get-Content "d:templatesinvite-template.htm" | Out-String)
