Good morning,,
I created an application in C# where, at some point, the user will need to use outlook  to send an email to a colleague.

The email address of the percipient as well as the body and subject matter are placed in text boxes in the win form waiting to be moved or copied to the outgoing email in Outlook.

So, basically my question is: how do I run outlook form inside a win form, select a new email copy the recipient email address and the body of text into the email and send it.

Thank you
