InfoPath, Email and SharePoint Designer Workflow

I have an Infopath form that is connected to a SharePoint List. The client wants to be able to send an email by clicking a button in an InfoPath form. He wants to include in the email:
To: Multiple people from  a list in the form - SP Groups and individuals
CC: same above
Subject: Change as needed per email
Body: certain fields in the form and sometimes all fields in the form. Also in the body they want to be able to add their own content which could be quite a bit.

Can this be done in Outlook to include the above. I know I can create a SP Designer workflow from the sharepoint list, and include the fields I need, but not sure about the multiple people in the To field and if I create a comments section for the email body it will be viewed in the form.

So basically they would like to combine two options: auto fields from SP designer workflow and ability to edit in Outlook before they send the email. Is this possible?

For the InfoPath email, you need the email addresses in one field separated by semicolons, just like they would be in InfoPath.

So have the user mark the recipients and concatenate the email to a To field with a semicolon.

Then use the To field for the email submit.  The issue gets tricky when they want to remove one but you can have them start over.

You can also give them the to field and the body field to edit, in the same way as outlook, or they can when Outlook pops up.
