You may use Send-MailMessage command which doesn’t require outlook..
Here is an example..
$to="User@domain.com","User2@domain.com"
Send-MailMessage -From "Sub@domain.com" -To $to -Subject "Testing" -Body "This is my test mail" -Attachments "C:\temp\test.txt" -SmtpServer smtp.domain.com

Open in new window

Refer this article for more details about Send-MailMessage

If you want to use outlook then, here is an example..
$ol = New-Object -comObject Outlook.Application  
$mail = $ol.CreateItem(0)  
$Mail.Recipients.Add("User1@domain.com") 
$Mail.Recipients.Add("User2@domain.com") 
$Mail.Attachments.Add("C:\temp\test.txt") 
$Mail.Subject = "Testing"  
$Mail.Body = "This is my test mail"  
$Mail.Send() 

Open in new window
