|FromName||Required. Name of the person or entity that you are sending from, for example UWW Admissions|
|Reply-To||Required. Email address you would want people to reply to when they click reply. Helpful if you want to receive replies to your email. Can be the same as FromEmail.|
|BCC||Optional. Email address you want to BCC for the email. Only use one here. Helpful to keep sent messages.|
|Attachments||Optional. File path(s) to the attachment(s) you want to include. If multiple attachments, separate them with a pipe character: | Total size of all file attachments should not exceed 19MB|

Command Line Arguments
You can optionally specify the csv location via command line argument. When you do this the program will automatically email people in the CSV, without requiring you to click the start button.
The csv file should be in the same format as above. This is helpful so that other programs can generate a csv and kick off the emailing process automatically.
