Composing Outlook 07 E-Mail w/VB Form Field Data

I am trying to add a custom pane to Microsoft Outlook 2007 that will allow me to create an e-mail (within an open instance of Outlook) and add a recipient, subject, message and attachment and send the message after reviewing the input.  

I have figured out how to make the physical pane but have no idea how to call Outlook 2007 commands from VB.  I am essentially trying to make a custom form to generate e-mails.

I have attempted to read the "literature" on this matter but I couldn't make sense of any of it.  Can someone give me a very straight forward rundown of how to add the above input to an e-mail?

I really appreciate any help I can get - this is really frustrating.
