Send Email option for clearquest records

Add the ability to send email directly from a CQ record, Selecting 'Send E-Mail' would result in:
- Outlook message opening with record details in Body
- To: field would be auto-populated with Owner, Originator, Project Leads - Headline would be the CR# and Headline
- User could then add a message to the Body, and the above record details

Currently 'Send email' option just attaches a link to the email. Rather it should be customized. This would help us making things easy for end users. They do not have to login to cqweb to read any update. By email enough information could be sent.
