I am using clenotes 4.2.2 with IBM Lotus Notes client 8.5 (Release 8.5.1 FP1).
You can see below that I have provided my password on the command line - but it still prompts for my password and when I enter my password, it gives an error anyways.
<strong>CLENotes-4.2.2>clenotes.cmd send --to="email@example.com" --subject="test mail" --password=xxxxmypwdxxxx</strong></div>

The ID file being used is: U:\Notes8\Data\xxxx_myuser_xxxx.id
Enter password (press the Esc key to abort): <strong><I enter xxxxmypwdxxxx again></strong></div>
<strong>Error executing command 'Mail.sendMail': getopt.GetoptError <u><em>,option --password not recognized,</em></u> <traceback object at 1></strong></div>
Any help is much appreciated.
