You only need an smtp server (free available at internet)

The suggestion of using an smtp server is valid (if you have one), but you can also use Outlook.

Start with getting an Outlook.Application object, as most of the other objects in Outlook are not public-createable.

Here's a starting point:

The example shows you how to create a task, but you can make a mail item just as easily. Then just set a couple of properties and Send it.

The link provided works with any client e-mail software. There are many free smtp servers on the net.
