How to automatically email the contents of a Windows folder?

We have an accounting application that can automatically generate report files, but it does not have the ability to automatically email them.  

Does anyone know of an SMTP command line, or free/inexpensive software that will allow us to take the contents of a given Windows folder and email them as attachments on an automatically scheduled basis?

More info:  We do NOT have the flexibility to purchase and install Microsoft Outlook for this purpose.  We CAN use Mozilla Thunderbird in conjunction with FireDaemon so that we have a MAPI-compliant email program running in the background... or, as mentioned above, perhaps we could use an SMTP command line using a Gmail SMTP server.
