Here's the simple, easy solution I recently employed...

1.) Include the MAPI32 ActiveX control tags in your page. Both tags reference the same OCX. The message control AND the session control are both embedded into this OCX file. Make sure the codebase path is correct for your site. Also make sure you have the OCX file in the referenced folder.

NOTE:The MSMAPI32.ocx control is a licensed control. You'll need to include an LPK tag to license the control. The LPK file can be created with the LPK License Tool.

<OBJECT codebase="Controls/MSMAPI32.ocx"
 ID="ctlMessage" WIDTH=39 HEIGHT=39
 CLASSID="CLSID:20C62CAB-15DA-101B-B9A8-444553540000">
    <PARAM NAME="_ExtentX" VALUE="1005">
    <PARAM NAME="_ExtentY" VALUE="1005">
    <PARAM NAME="_Version" VALUE="327680">
    <PARAM NAME="AddressEditFieldCount" VALUE="1">
    <PARAM NAME="AddressModifiable" VALUE="0">
    <PARAM NAME="AddressResolveUI" VALUE="0">
    <PARAM NAME="FetchSorted" VALUE="0">
    <PARAM NAME="FetchUnreadOnly" VALUE="0">
</OBJECT>

<OBJECT codebase="Controls/MSMAPI32.ocx"
 ID="ctlSession" WIDTH=39 HEIGHT=39
 CLASSID="CLSID:20C62CA0-15DA-101B-B9A8-444553540000">
    <PARAM NAME="_ExtentX" VALUE="1005">
    <PARAM NAME="_ExtentY" VALUE="1005">
    <PARAM NAME="_Version" VALUE="327680">
    <PARAM NAME="DownloadMail" VALUE="0">
    <PARAM NAME="LogonUI" VALUE="0">
    <PARAM NAME="NewSession" VALUE="0">
</OBJECT>

2.) Copy and paste the following into your page
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="VBScript">
Sub SendMessage(strAddress, strSubject, strMessage)

   ' If the address, subject and message variables are in place
   If strAddress = "" Or strSubject = "" Or strMessage = "" Then
      ' Either the address, subject and/or message variables were empty
      MsgBox "Error Constructing Email Message"
      Exit Sub
   End If

   ' If a messaging system session does NOT exist
   If ((ctlMessage.SessionID = 0) Or IsNull(ctlMessage.SessionID)) Then
      ' Log the user on to the messaging system
      ctlSession.SignOn
      ' Get the messaging system session ID
      ctlMessage.SessionID = ctlSession.SessionID
   End If

   ' Compose the email from the variables
   ctlMessage.Compose
   ctlMessage.AddressResolveUI = 0
   ctlMessage.RecipAddress = varAddress
   ctlMessage.MsgSubject = varSubject
   ctlMessage.MsgNoteText = varMessage
   ctlMessage.ResolveName
     
   ' Send the email without user interaction
   ctlMessage.Send 0
     
   ' If an error was encountered
   If Err.Number > 0 Then
      ' Display an error message (email application probably not open)
      MsgBox "ERROR: " & CStr(Err.Number) & Chr(13) & _
                     "Unable to Send Email" & Chr(13) & Chr(13) & _
                     "Make sure you Email Program" & Chr(13) & _
                     "is Open and working correctly"
      ' Clear the error
      Err.Clear
      Exit Sub
   Else
      ' Display a success message
      MsgBox "Email Sent"
   End If

End Sub
</SCRIPT>

NOTE: The users will need to have their email application (i.e. Exchange) open for the control to access it.

3.) Call the SendMessage sub with the email address, subject, and message strings. For example:
SendMessage("joe@hishouse.net", "Kewl Email!", "Hey Joe...")

I have literally hunderds of users who use this on a daily basis and it works great. I hope this helps...
