I have a vb.net app that depending on a process needs to automatically send an email to the user...this has to be done programmatically.  I have the domain..right now its set up thru google apps...to respond to users questions, we need that functionality..but I dont think they offer anything like this(API)......I'd prefer to go through MS Exchange...so Outlook can be used on client..curious if there are 3rd party options..or an API..would be nice...I am setting my own SMTP server but wont be read for months..

On the following link, you can see how to send email from VB.NET:

You just have to provide the SMTP server details, it doesn't matter whether the server is from Google Apps or Exchange.
[Note: The server details are similar to the ones you use to configure your email account in Outlook]
