Creating an email with interactive hyperlinks

I would like to create an email with hyperlinks that are dependant on values that the recipient enters.  For instance, my email recipient would type "boomerang" in a special field of the email, and then click a link, and be taken to www.mydomain.com/search=boomerang.

Any ideas?

A basic form should work in your standard HTML formatted email.  So, something along the lines of:

<HTML>
<BODY>

<FORM name="search" action="www.yoursite.com/search.php" method="get">
<INPUT NAME="search" TYPE=Text>
<input type="submit" value="Submit">
</FORM>

</BODY>
</HTML>

I'm looking at the manual (http://www.arialsoftware.com/manuals/email_marketing_director.pdf) and I don't think you can do any kind of scripting with this program. If you have MS Office, I'm sure it can be done with VBA code.
