How to develop a package in installshield that would gather the information entered by the user and the cd serial no and send it by mail to a mail id without launching a email program.

A few things to keep in mind.
1. I you are sending an Internet SMTP host, you might want to enable SMTP authentication (blat supports this).
2. The user might be behind a firewall and unable to send email.
3. The ethical problems this can create, by using this technique.
In general you should (must??) provide an alternate means of registration (see point #2). As an alternative you might wan to use a CDO object routine from within IS, but this brings problems in and of itself.

And use a proper protocol for this information! Sending customer information in an email is like sending it on a postcard through the mail. Encode the information you need into some parsable format, like XML, and send it via HTTPS to a server, where you can insert the values into a protected database.
Make sure you get this right, as a small mistake can lead to private information being made public. Your app will look lame, and your company/organization will look like a bunch of chumps.
Sorry for the strong words, but sending this kind of stuff over clear-text SMTP is not an idea that will garner a lot of respect from a lot of tech-savvy people.
