Send email from the command line [duplicate]

I am looking for a program that can send an email from the command line, or more specifically from a script. Searching through superuser I've found a lot of Linux solutions but I'd like something which can run in Windows (XP or 2003). I have come across a program called "blat." Has anyone had any positive results with this program? Negative? Or could you offer other suggestions?

"powershell 2.0 has a send-mail cmdlet built in.
Example:

Send-MailMessage –From me@myDomain.com –To you@Yourdomain.com –Subject
""Test Email"" –Body ""Testing the cmdlet"" –SmtpServer smtp.mydomain.com"
