for the email part:

With myRpt.ExportOptions
                            .DestinationType = crEDTEMailMAPI
                            .MailToList = "<email>"
                            .MailCcList = "<ccs>"
                            .MailSubject = "<subject>"
                            .FormatType = crEFTHTML32Standard
                            .HTMLFileName = App.Path & "\Temp.html"
                         End With
                         myRpt.Export False

Do you want to do this directly from VB or from the CR preview screen?

From the CR preview screen you just need to have the appropriate export dlls loaded and then click on the envelope icon to export the report.  Choose the appropriate method and export the report.
