My personal PowerShell ISE snippets

Following the post of Josh RICKARD on 4SysOps about ISE snippets,
I just wanted to share two of my personal snippets I use very often as a System Administrator.

Foreach function with a server list from an array

$SnippetText = @'
$ServerList=@(
'Server1'
'Server2'
)
foreach($Server in $ServerList)
{

}
'@

$NewSnippetParams = @{
Title       = 'Foreach with server list from array'
Description = 'Foreach function using an array of servers'
Text        = $SnippetText
CaretOffset = 17
Author      = 'Luc FULLENWARTH'
}

New-IseSnippet @NewSnippetParams

Foreach function with a server list imported from an file

$SnippetText = @'
$ServerList = Get-Content -Path C:\Temp\MyList.txt

Title       = 'Foreach with server list from file'
Description = 'Foreach function using a file to get the server list'
Text        = $SnippetText
CaretOffset = 33

I shared this one on the VSCode PowerShell Extension community snippet list

$Params = @{

'Port'        =  25
'Priority'    = 'Normal'
'From'        = 'sender@mycompany.com'
'To'          = 'mainrecipient@mycompany.com'
'Cc'          = 'copyrecipient@mycompany.com'
'Bcc'         = 'hiddenrecipient@mycompany.com'
'Subject'     = 'Mail title'
'Body'        = 'This is the content of my mail'
'BodyAsHtml'  =  $false
'Attachments' = 'c:\\MyFile.txt'
}
Send-MailMessage @Params
'@

$NewSnippetParams = @{
Title       = 'Send-MailMessage'
Description = 'Send-MailMessage cmdlet with splatting for parameters'
