So, platform is Windows XP, cmd is the preferred command line and GMail is where I have my email.

I'm interested in the possibility of sending mail through the command line, as lately I've been sending a lot of one-liners concerning some ... well, some work stuff, to a group of two or three people.

Is there such a possibility and what would be needed for that? I've googled a bit on the subject, but get a lot of "expired" articles and linux-related answers.

Has anyone managed to setup this, and if so, would you be willing to share a word or two on the subject?

blat is commonly used for cmd line email in win. This may be useful Using Blat, Stunnel and Gmail Together (I have not used it myself hence comment only) –  wmz Aug 20 '12 at 0:19

You can try installing Sendmail on your box and configure it to use Gmail as its SMTP server. Found this like on how to set that up http://drewdahl.com/2010/02/18/setup-sendmail-to-use-gmails-smtp-server/

@Shocm-The page that you linked explains the method to do for Fedora not for windows. Or is it applicable for windows also, if I'm wrong? –  arulappan Aug 20 '12 at 4:11
    
Yeah but I believe you can install sendmail on Windows as well so it's just a matter of converting over the configuration settings required for sendmail. –  Shocm Aug 20 '12 at 11:08
