Or is there some other packing that would work better

You should probably use the command that is native to your OS.
On Unix you can use either sendmail or mailx.
Since you mention Outlook, it would stand to reason that you are on NT. Although I do not have an NT Server in front of me, I would search the Disk for the Mail Command. If you cannot find one, I am sure that you can find a Freeware version of a SMTP Mail tool which will work quite well for you.
Hope that answers your question.

So the command would be:
mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=Help It's dead.....
I don't know the rest i.e. how to add event output in the body text but this should give you something to go on, if it works.

Use a freeware tool called "postie" avalable at http://www.infradig.com This is a command line e-mail tool which works well and efficiently.
Remember, any executable called as an alarm action either needs to be in the path or in the OpenViewbin directory. You'll need to put postie.exe there and if you choose to use the config file, postie.txt, that needs to be in that directory as well.
Additional instructions come with the download.

I am using mapisend from BackOffice Resource Kit.
I have changed ovactiond.lrf to send message with a NT user account.
I am running NNM 6.10 on NT Server and I have used Exchenge Server to send e-mail. Note that mu server doesn't have snmp service running.
