Sending a Mail via OWA from Script

Continuing on from some of my other posts I've done recently regarding reusing OWA commands such as this one I've come up with a script that uses the commands that OWA does to send a new email. Some of the advantages of this is that mail sent via this method ends up in the sent items of the sending mailbox. Its also acts as an alternative where you don't want to use CDO, ADO/Exoledb or WebDAV.

stmsgbody = stmsgbody & "What to get some coffee Mate, Meet me downstairs in ten<BR><BR>"
stmsgbody = stmsgbody & "Cheers<BR>"
stmsgbody = stmsgbody & "Barney<BR>"
