Is there a reason why you need to use a batch file? A very simple VBScript will do the job for you.

Paste this into a text file and change the extension to .vbs (After replacing the {values} with correct values). This will require no third party downloads.

Set fso=CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")


If fso.FileExists(strAttach) then
Set iMsg = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
Set iConf = CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")
iConf.Load -1    ' CDO Source Defaults
Set Flds = iConf.Fields
With Flds
    .Item("") = 2
    .Item("") = strSMTP
    .Item("") = 25
End With
With iMsg
    Set .Configuration = iConf
    .To = strRecipient
    .CC = ""
    .BCC = ""
    .From = "<" & strSender & ">"
    .Subject = strSubject
    .TextBody = strBody
    .AddAttachment strAttach
End With
Set iMsg = Nothing
Set iConf = Nothing
MsgBox "The specified attachment does not exist"
End if
