If I interpreted you question correctly (not an easy task) you want a commandline tool to send emails. The time proven tool for this is blat.

Mr.John do you have a full example about blat ????? – Mohammad AL-Rawabdeh Mar 6 '11 at 11:41
@Mohammad, click on the word "blat". It's a link that will take you to the product web site, where you will also find all the documentation. – John Gardeniers Mar 6 '11 at 20:30

Try the examples on Petri IT Knowledgebase.

EDIT: For authentication-support and attachments consider smtpmail
