HTML, FORMs and AJAX inside Email clients?

Many email clients like Microsoft Outlook allow one to send HTML messages. A prospective client wanted to know if he could put is application directly in the email message instead of using a link to his web page.

I've never seen a submit button in an email message before. Do most email clients support a submit button for a GET or POST to an external web page?

Do email clients support AJAX?
