Hi, mmq2006.

The answer depends on you knowing what email clients the recipients use.  If they all use Outlook, then you can design a cutom Outlook form that'll do this.  If they don't all use Outlook but do use a client that faithfully supports HTML (which rules out Outlook 2007), then you can design the survey in HTML and send it in the body of the message.  The recipients will fill it out and click a submit button just as they would if they took the survey out at a web site.  The key is knowing what client your target audience uses and knowing how well those clients support HTML standards.

Can you post a copy of your form online at a location where I can have a look at it?

if I develop my servuy as a web page using C#, is it possible to send it by outlook email. not a link; but a survey in the email as a body.

if yes, how? Thanks.

The answer depends on what you mean by "using C#".  That will not work if you mean sending C# code embeded in an Outlook message.  Outlook does not allow any scripting/programming at all in an HTML message.  All the message is allowed to contain is HTML.  However, you could use C# to generate a web page and send the resulting HTML via Outlook.
