I am a little confused about the requirement. Do you want to send
email from the XSLT stylesheet?

It seems to me, you have some output from your stylesheet which you
need to email to some address.

To send an email from any environment, you need to send some specific
SMTP commands to a SMTP host to a service listening to port 25. You
cannot do this natively from the XSLT stylesheet, as in XSLT there is
no mechanism (an instruction, or an API) to communicate to hosts via
TCP/IP protocol. You can do this via say Java extension functions.

Constructing a MIME multipart message by hand could be cumbersome, if
for example there are attachments. You would need to understand the
MIME format very well to send all kind of emails correctly.

You can take an easy route by using Java mail API, if you are working
in a Java environment. You can invoke Java mail functions from the
stylesheet as extension functions.
