"You can use the SendObject action to [send] electronic mail message [via] Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft Mail, Microsoft Windows for Workgroups mail, or another electronic mail application that uses the Microsoft Mail Applications Programming Interface (MAPI)."

Very well, but HOW DO I TELL IT WHICH electronic mail applicaiton to use (it seems stuck on Outlook), and how do I get it to not popup the dialog box from which I have to choose a profile? I need this box to not appear, since I want to run this as a scheduled process under NT 4, and any screen interatction causes such a process to lock up.

Just about all email programs like to be the "one".
I think you will have to decided on which one you want by changing this in the registry under local machine software microsoft.  look for the mapi settings.
To turn of the prompt in outlook you need to basically edit the registry as the dialog box deselection does not seem to work.
