I have a client that has a database in SQL Server. It has a front end PowerBuilder application that I developed. They use this for Membership management and send emails regurlarly. A new VP has come on board that wants to send Emails through Outlook, but wants the Body to be personalized to recipient.

Dear John:

Your company, Verizon, Inc. is a very important member....

They also want to add attachments and set the subject line. The data for the merge is in SQL Server and I have the perfect spot to put the button control. Problem is, I don't know a good resource for connecting to Outlook 2003, loading the information and pressing the send button, in an automagical way.

Any guidence would be greatly appreciated.
