Sending mail in C/PRO*C in a UNIX Environment

I am using PROC*C, UNIX and ORACLE.  I have already writen a PRO*C program to fetch data from ORACLE and generate a Text file. I would like to use the mail feature inside C  program to send email with the contents of the text file.
  Any solutions ?  Need more detailed reply.

system("/usr/lib/sendmail kkolya@experts-exchange.com <text.file");

How is the performance of sending email in C program using system command. ? What is the fast way to send email when there is processing and data gathering to create email body using PRO*C. This mass email sending depending on the data.
system() does spawn an extra command shell,
It could be more efficient to pipe directly to a sendmail process instead of using a shell to send a file to it.
(By the way, if you have followup questions it is usually better to keep the question open until they are resolved.
