I am writing a smart tag that will recognize some keywords in a document, and help send portions of a workbook [certain cell contents] as an email.

While i could get the recognizers to work and also have the actions triggered, I am facing problems with the following:
1. the activecell is not the cell where the smart tag is recognized. how can i get the cell reference for the cell that contains the smart tag?

2. how can i create a mail message from within this dll? <trying to set the outlook.application gives me a syntax error - whereas that code runs ok as a vb exe.>
