sending an email and also storing the contents in the database via

instead of using a form etc for users to enter info to send an email is there a way where we can have users click on a button and Microsoft exchange email popups and they can type whatever they want and send an email and at the same time store that record in the DB

You'd probably have to write an Outlook Add-in or possibly some VBA code.

I expect you can launch a new e-mail - especially if you use Outlook - using a call.  Once you've launched the program to compose the e-mail however, you won't have any control over the message itself.

Your best bet would be to offer the user some sort of form or dialog they can fill in, store the contents in your database, then use the .Net Framework to compose and send the e-mail.

so this is not common, I really don't have to do it this way, was just looking for some new things as was away from coding , any new ideas even to use the traditional smtp , I know how to use it but like any jquery form or something new for the email form to pop up

If you're looking for something pre-built, I'm not aware of anything.
