Windows 7: E-mail as a windows service? (Server 08)

E-mail as a windows service? (Server 08)

Hey Guys,

I need some help with a project, we have an app that runs on local users' machines via Terminal Services.

This software needs to be able to send out reports via e-mail, but it is still in its early phase and doesn't have e-mail support built in.

Are there any programs that allow sending of email in the background? I.e. without having to open outlook, and create a new message?

Something similar to the way the old Linux software Ghost in the Mail worked?
