Common function for sending mail

This is the common function for sending mail using LotusScript. In this function just pass Sendto, CC, BCC, Subject, Body, and Document Link as an Argument when you call the function. You can also send Mail to multiple users at the same time; just pass the variable that holds multiple values in Sendto, CC, or BCC as an Argument.
