DOS/NT command-line mail utilities

We are running an HTTP server on an NT machine, and have a number of CGI
scripts for processing input from forms. It would be very useful for the
script (an NT console-app) to be able to send Internet email in this
context, not least for server-maintenance purposes. The options I can think
of are:

1) linking in some library code from somewhere,
2) exec'ing a DOS/NT-console command-line eMail utility, or
3) some `natural' way of doing this I haven't thought of re. the HTTP server.

Any suggestions gratefully received by private eMail (sorry if this is a
FAQ). I will report back if I get someuseful replies.

Incidentally the Internet mail clients we have are Eudora, Pegasus Mail, Elm.
