Yeah I got that error too, a while ago, and your message prompted me to
look at it. It seems like org-mime is just a bit behind the state of
org-export, and fixing that one dead function link is enough to make it
work again. I've attached a patch.

Generating a message buffer is pretty much hard-coded into org-mime.
Once you're in that buffer, though, the (non-interactive) function
mml-generate-mime will return the fully encoded mime message as a
string -- you could save that to a file and do something else with it.
I'm not 100% confident that's the simplest way to do that.

As far as I know, that's exactly what org-mime does!

Subject: [PATCH] Update org-mime to current export functions

* /contrib/lisp/org-mime.el (org-mime-send-buffer):

This function was using `org-export-grab-title-from-buffer', which no
longer exists.
