Here's what I do:

get shell("mail -s" \
    && quote & tSubject & quote \
    && tEmailAddress \
    && "-- -f" & tContactEmail \
    && "<" && tTempFile)

where tSubject is a var containing the subject line
tEmailAddress is the "To:" address
tContactEmail is the "From:" address
and tTempFile is a text file containing the body text.
