After export the Crystal Reports as a PDF file , the next step is to email that file . For that here we are using System.Web.Mail . We have to provide the necessary information to configuring SmtpMail client and send the exported file as attachment .

Select the default form (Form1.vb) you created in VB.NET and drag two buttons (Button1, Button2 ) and CrystalReportViewer control to your form.

Select Form's source code view and import the following :

Imports CrystalDecisions.Shared
Imports System.Web.Mail

Public Class Form1
    Dim cryRpt As New ReportDocument
    Dim pdfFile As String = "c:\ProductReport1.pdf"

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
    ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        cryRpt.Load("PUT CRYSTAL REPORT PATH HERE\CrystalReport1.rpt")
        CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = cryRpt
        CrystalReportViewer1.Refresh()
    End Sub

    Private Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
    ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
        Try
            Dim CrExportOptions As ExportOptions
            Dim CrDiskFileDestinationOptions As New _
            DiskFileDestinationOptions()
            Dim CrFormatTypeOptions As New PdfRtfWordFormatOptions
            CrDiskFileDestinationOptions.DiskFileName = pdfFile
            CrExportOptions = cryRpt.ExportOptions
            With CrExportOptions
                .ExportDestinationType = ExportDestinationType.DiskFile
                .ExportFormatType = ExportFormatType.PortableDocFormat
                .DestinationOptions = CrDiskFileDestinationOptions
                .FormatOptions = CrFormatTypeOptions
            End With
            cryRpt.Export()
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.ToString)
        End Try
        sendMail()
    End Sub

    Private Sub sendMail()
        Try
            Dim Smtp As SmtpMail
            SmtpMail.SmtpServer.Insert(0, "your hostname")
            Dim Msg As MailMessage = New MailMessage
            Msg.To = "to address here"
            Msg.From = "from address here"
            Msg.Subject = "Crystal Report Attachment "
            Msg.Body = "Crystal Report Attachment "
            Msg.Attachments.Add(New MailAttachment(pdfFile))
            Smtp.Send(Msg)
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.ToString)
        End Try
    End Sub
End Class

NOTES:
cryRpt.Load("PUT CRYSTAL REPORT PATH HERE\CrystalReport1.rpt")

The Crystal Report is in your project location, there you can see CrystalReport1.rpt . So give the full path name of report here.

Before you run this programme , you have to provide the necessary SMTP informations , that is your HOSTNAME , FROM ADDRESS and TO ADDRESS to the SMTP client.
