Here's what should get you started:
Put this in your .emacs:
(setq smtpmail-smtp-server "your.smtp.host.fqdn.goes.here")
(setq smtpmail-local-domain "your.domain.goes.here")
(setq smtpmail-smtp-service "smtp")
(setq send-mail-function (quote smtpmail-send-it))
(setq smtpmail-debug-info t)
(setq user-full-name "YOUR NAME")
(setq user-mail-address "USER(a)your.domain.goes.here")
When you send mail from a newly started XEmacs, you should get a
buffer named something like
*trace of SMTP session to your.smtp.host.fqdn.goes.here*
Have a look whether the SMTP protocol looks OK in there.
Should say something like this in the end:
250 Message accepted.
221 your.smtp.host.fqdn.goes.here closing.
If you want to get serious with using XEmacs for E-mail, I'd recommend
Gnus (powerful, handled netnews and mail uniformly) or VM (a great
mailreader). Both support MIME.
Hope this helps,
