sending an email and also storing the contents in the database via vb.net

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

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.

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