windows service instead of exe - issues

Hi,

I build app which uses e.g. email vcl components, richview etc, want to run it as service (to ommit UAC prompts for privileges elevation)

1) Is writing app as service seems to be only way to make it rather than std exe?

2) What are limitations, let's say I don't want to use GUI I heard not everything can be compiled even if not form as showed

3) Finally I heard about tricks to run any exe even those with interactive GUI as service, is this possible ?

I use Delphi XE3
