Wasn't it be simpler to just install them?
What exactly do you want to achieve? Send some files via email? Maybe you can try mutt to do this
Something like this:
echo "body of email" | mutt -x -s "your subject" -a your_file_to_attach recipient's@address

I think you need to install one of them since these are standard tools and I am not aware of alternative for command line. You could install mail agent like thunderbird :
