Use @MailSend function


@MailSend( sendTo ; copyTo ; blindCopyTo ; subject ; remark ; bodyFields ; [ flags ] )

Just incase , you need a sample code :-

Subject := "Subject goes here";
Message := "Body goes here";
@MailSend(Names; ""; "" ;Subject; Message; "");
A sample code in Lotus Script:
Sub SendMailToRequestFromAdmin1
      Print "Submitting mail to approving person ..."
      Dim ws As New notesuiworkspace
      Dim uidoc As notesuidocument
      Dim doc As notesdocument
      Dim item As NotesItem
      Dim numvalues As Integer
      Dim session As New notessession
      Dim db As notesdatabase
      Dim maildoc As notesdocument
      Dim Body As NotesRichTextItem
      Dim hard As String
      Set db=session.currentdatabase
      Set uidoc=ws.currentdocument
      Set doc=uidoc.document
      Dim item1 As notesitem
      Set item1 =doc.getfirstitem("staffname_x")
'      For y = 0 To Ubound(item1.values)
      Set maildoc = New NotesDocument( db )
      maildoc.Form = "Memo"
      If (uidoc.Fieldgettext("status_x")="Approved") Then
            maildoc.Subject ="Payment Voucher - Approved"
            Set Body=New NotesRichTextItem(maildoc,"Body")
            message="Your Payment Voucher for the items requested for the amount "+tmpamount+" has been approved. Thank you."
      End If
      If doc.status_x(0)="Pending" Then
            maildoc.Subject ="New Payment Voucher"
            Set Body=New NotesRichTextItem(maildoc,"Body")
            message="Please check the items requested to this month to your department for the amount "+tmpamount+". Thank you."
      End If
      If (uidoc.Fieldgettext("status_x")="Rejected") Then
            maildoc.Subject ="Payment Voucher - Rejected"
            Set Body=New NotesRichTextItem(maildoc,"Body")
            message="Your Payment Voucher for the items requested for the amount "+tmpamount+" has been rejected. Please make necessary amendmends and re-submit again.  Thank you."
      End If
      Call Body.AppendText(message)
      Call Body.AddNewLine(2)
      message1="Click here to open the form=========>>"
      Call Body.AppendText(message1)
      Call Body.AppendDocLink(doc,"Please click this link to open the document")
      Call Body.AddNewLine(2)
      mess="(This is an auto-generated email. You may delete this after review.)"
      Call Body.AppendText(mess)
      For y = 0 To Ubound(item1.values)
            Print "Submitted to : "+item1.values(y)
            Call maildoc.Send( True, hard)
End Sub
