Well, with Apache itself, I don't think there's a routine, since mail
is implemented differently on different platforms.

I cannot think of a method to deliver mail on a Windows system, mainly
because it's not got that orientation, first one has to buy exchange ...

Anyway, probably the most likely method is to open a pipe
to /usr/lib/sendmail or /usr/sbin/sendmail, whatever your religion,
then write mail to it.
