    I guess you would need some sort of telnet stack for this.

    Therefore, using Expect and telnet as shell command would do the job without using C.

    Samples of the SMTP protocol with HELO, DATA etc I found once in the O'Reilly book of Graig Hunt "TCP/IP Network Administration", but should also be found with any search engine. The RFC for SMTP is "RFC 821".

    Attachments need to be integrated into the mail before that, using MIME types.
