create new email for review

Experts:

I'm attempting to create a new email item for my users to review before sending from a SharePoint application. I thought I could do this using outlook extensions, but I've ran into a number of problems. Is there another way I can create a mail item and open it on with the users default email client without?  

Thanks in advance for the help,

Tapiwab,

Thanks for your comment but this doesn't look like it will work in my case. I'm working with application pages and have a lot of code that I need.

I'm not trying to send an email, I'm trying to open a new email in the default email client. It's for internal use, and I know the default email client will always be MS Outlook.
