Launch Email Template

Hi All,
 I have an equipment reservation database.  We are required to send an email 
confirmation when we make a reservation.  Right now, I have an email template 
that is launched when the user clicks on a custom button in Outlook.  It 
works.  What I would like to do is have the email automatically generated 
with the fields (user name - lookup in global address list, checkout date and 
expected return date) completed in the email.  Is there a way to utilize the 
already created template in Outlook and pass the fields to the template?  
Would it be better to recreate the email in the code for easier field 
handling?  The reservation would be a new record in the database and the 
email would need to be generated after the record is completed.

I don't do Outlook automation much so can't comment on using the already 
created template, but you can always just use code so you are building a 
string that represents the body of the email and start that string off by 
using some HTML from an email template.  You can extend that concept further 
by storing the actual email template in a table and come up with a variable 
substitution scheme that is used at runtime.  I wrote some code to do this 
exact thing http://www.rptsoftware.com/products/email/ it might help you out 
to write what you want faster.

If you send me an email I could point you to my newest product (in beta 
testing) which has email templates in the mix.  It goes a bit further than 
the little email template product in the way it lets the user build an email 
template.  I use it for acknowledgement letters and monthly newsletters for 
my donation software.  I could share some of the code I used for this 
emailing feature.

Other is approach is use a service such as Constant Contact to send HTML 
emails.
