If you don't have too much data, MS Access would be easier for you. SQL server is a bit more complicated. You can design forms in Access to let users enter information. With a simple VBA, you can send email using Outlook. Refer to sample code here

If you're using VB.NET, then IMO SQL Server Express is the best way to go. SSE integrates very easily with Visual Studio.

If you're not dead-set on using VB.NET, then building the application entirely with Access is also an option. As raysonlee indicates, you can use Access to build user entry forms, reports, etc etc. In general, building an app with Access is quicker than doing so with .NET.

What do you mean by "show you what steps to take". If you're not familiar with inventory management, then you might suggest to your friend that they find someone with experience in that area. Inventory management looks simple, but is very, very complex when you get beneath the surface.
