Using T4 for E-mail Generation and Reporting?

I’ve just been looking into a few options for reporting and e-mail generation within .NET applications. In the past I’ve used the Text Template Transformation Toolkit (T4) templating engine to generate e-mails to good effect and I’m looking to use it again on a little pet project. I’ve also got a need for a simple report generation capability within the application and was thinking that T4 could come in useful again.

Hopefully it’ll give me the capabilities I need right now until I can find a nice web-based report building tool that can be exposed to end users. The feedback that I’ve gotten from the user is “I’d like it to be like Quick Books”.

T4 is good – but it obviously lacks a web-based designer.
