Using Internet Explorer as a VB control

I am writing an email package in VB 5 Professional on Windows 95.
I want hypertext links in the email note to be active so that you can read a web page just by clicking on the address in the email.  Some have said to me that I should simply embed Internet Explorer in the VB form I have designed, so that I convert all the emails to HTML, and then can click on  any URLs in the email.

QUESTION:-  How do I embed Internet Explorer in a VB form, and , when I have done so, when I send an email to another person, will I have to strip out the HTML tags?

Thanks.

I have investigated the sitebuilder site, and found everything as promised.  There was one big disappointment, however.  Apparently you can only distribute the final application including the "Microsoft Internet Control" to a user who already has Internet Explorer on his machine.

This makes the distribution of my prospective email package far too restricted.

Thanks anyway.
