Yes.  You probably don't want to bother with Celeste if you just want to
send an email out.  Look at SMTPSocket and its class methods.  There is
a utility method that does everything for you.

The tricky part is finding an SMTP server to use.  On Unix you can
usually use localhost.  On other OS's you often need to use the SMTP
server your ISP has told you to use.
