The $pscred variable pulls up an already stored credential so Use Export-Clixml to store your credential before running this script
SendMail cmdlet needs the smtp server, from and to email addresses to be updated
CopyItem cmdlet needs the share path for a shared drive if you intend to store reports.
RemoteItem cmdlet cleansup last run output files
