Creating a web form issue

Hey, so I have sort of a weird question, I am trying to set up a web form for our intranet using ASP.NET pages on Visual Studio Web Developer. This form will take user input (obviously) and mail it to a set email address.

Initially I had the pages set up using only html and used a mailto action on the form. Although this sent successfully (albeit it looked terrible) I know that some users will be sending from PCs without Outlook so it wasn't a great solution.

The users do all have Outlook accounts, and since this will tie in to our help desk, I wanted them the mail to be sent by from their individual accounts for tracking purposes. I want to use CDO but when I try to add a reference to the cdo.dll file it says that it is not registered. So I registered the file and it still is giving me the same error.

Does anyone have any idea how I can get this file working correctly or an alternative route I can take?
