You need some mapi client for XP_Send_Mail

However you can use msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail to accomplish your task.

That's a 2005 feature (saw that from the zones you posted in).  If it's 2000 only then yeah, put outlook on the box and call it a day or get an upgrade.  You're only 14 years out of date!
