sure.

   msg = "To: %s\nFrom: %s\nSubject: %s\n\n%s" % [@to, @from,  
@subject, @message]
   Net::SMTP.start("localhost"){|smtp| smtp.send_message msg, @to,  
@from }

you'll need to encode you attachments by hand though.  the class i  
posted is just a wrapper on doing the above by hand each time.   
mailfactory is really nice for building the actual email body too.   
as far as built in is concerned though - net/smtp is as high level as  
it gets.
