Make sure you are using some lines of code before using sendmail function:
UserName = 'yourmail@gmail.com';
passWord = 'password';
setpref('Internet','E_mail',UserName);
setpref('Internet','SMTP_Server','smtp.gmail.com');
setpref('Internet','SMTP_Username',UserName);
setpref('Internet','SMTP_Password',passWord);
props = java.lang.System.getProperties;
props.setProperty('mail.smtp.auth','true');
props.setProperty('mail.smtp.socketFactory.class', ...
'javax.net.ssl.SSLSocketFactory');
props.setProperty('mail.smtp.socketFactory.port','465');
emailto = 'emailWhereToSend'; % recipient's email
sendmail(emailto, 'My Subject', 'My message');

save your variable, and add that as the fourth argument of the sendmail function. Examples in doc may help you too. http://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/sendmail.html
