Command line mail via Lotus Domino

I have a set of reporting scripts that run as cron jobs on all my servers (a hodge-podge mix of several versions of Fedora & RHEL). These scripts collect performance related data & other information that goes into a report that I have to maintain. As of now, I manually collect the data from these servers every morning. I wanted to modify the current setup to mail the information to me. The problem here is that sendmail is not allowed in the environment and the only mail server is a Lotus Domino server.

My initial problem was how to send an automated mail from the command line to an external server. mail/mailx didn't quite do it for me. Google told me of a perl script called sendEmail[1] which does the job for me.

The problem is that it doesn't work with Lotus Domino. There exists a Java program[2] from IBM that can achieve this but I would prefer not to futz around with Java.

Has anybody managed to send automated emails in a similar environment? Any pointers would be great.
