Doing this involves several things not related to subversion. Actually,
the part that's related to SVN is the _smallest_ part of this job.

This forum can't really help you with all the other stuff.

Start by finding out which SMTP server to use or if you need to install
your own, and make a script that sends e-mail, unrelated to subversion.
This allows you to find out all the _other_ problems that you will face,
that are NOT related to SVN.

For example, you can go on google and search for an SMTP server for
win2k. Next you can write a small python or perl script that sends mail.
  You can take parts of it from the mailer.py or commit-email.pl.

When this is done, it's a small thing to insert the correct invocation
of the relevant script into SVN's "post-commit" hook, and described in
the book.
