On linux it's versy simple; one of the first examples:

program sendmail;

Uses linux;

var F : Text;

  POpen(F,'sendmail me at myhost','W');
  Writeln(F,'Subject: Sending a mail with fpc');
  Writeln(F,'sending mails is very easy');
  If PClose(F)=0 then 
    Writeln('Sent mail successfully')

See linux unit documentation.

On windows, it's more hard, there you must use the 'mapi' dll;
but that is a little more complicated.
