Sorry, I wasn't specific enough.
Ok, with this command line I can call the outlook, but I need to create a new email, with an attach file.

If (and it's a real big 'if') Microsoft has an api to talk to outlook by manually taking over sdin, then you could do it by manipulating the process returned by the above call.
