I'm not sure if this is exactly correct (man mail to be sure), but I 
think you can do something like this:

  sprintf(buf, "mail %s < newbie_help.txt &", ch->email);

Assuming you have a variable ch->email for a player's email address, and 
a newbi help file named as above in your lib directory (maybe put it in 
lib/text instead) I think this will send the helpfile to their address.  
Somebody point out the security hole in this, since I'm sure one exists.
