yes. Look up xp_sendmail. Or you could create an SSIS package to do this. There are a number of ways this can be accomplished.

look at dbmail instead, you want to steer clear of xp_sendmail.
This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature. To send mail from SQL Server, use Database Mail.


but yeah you could just run a tsql job stop that uses dbmail.

thanks,
its working now.

we already had dbmail set up so managed to just use something like this to send mail:
EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail
@recipients = 'youremailid@xxxx.com',
@body = 'Database Mail Testing...',
@subject = 'Databas Mail from SQL Server';

from here:
