Well, XML is just plain text (although Unicode
would seem to complicate that a little).

If your XML is just ASCII, couldn't you just
send the content in the body of the e-mail,
just using standard e-mail tools?

If the XML is full Unicode, perhaps MIME
encode it, and then include it in the message

Either way, the e-mail side of things should
be pretty standard, so I'm not sure what a
custom component would really do for you ...
