Simple SMTP Mail Sending?


Greetings,
I am setting up a FTP server that needs to send periodic notifications to email accounts. I dont need a very robust email client, as this will only be sending notifications out periodically. Are there any programs I coudl use that would work with my existing ISP mail provider?

I need someting to send text based messages only (through a script I have yet to write.)

Any ideas?

Thanks.
