N00B. I cannot seem to get this right.

#include <iostream>
#include <cstdlib>
using namespace std;

int main(void)
	system(("sendmail -options" + EMAIL_TEXT));

	return 0;

You need it to be a constant string so try this.

system(("sendmail -options" + EMAIL_TEXT).c_str());

c_str() converts the string into a const char*.

do you need a space between "-options" and the email address? Like:

system(("sendmail -options " + EMAIL_TEXT));
