What do you mean by "mail option" - just sending a mail? Or receiving mails as well? The sending part can be handled by an embedded mail server such as Aspirin.

For SMS you'll have to sign up with a provider. Be aware that users might decompile the application, and use the code that causes SMS to be sent for their own purposes - at your expense.

A more reliable option might be for the desktop app to go through your server -for both mail and SMS-, and have your server send out all that. You get much better control over the process that way.
