I would like to send an e-mail out from a crystal report with the report exported to excel as an attachment.  I have the attached code.  I am getting the error
Type Initialization  Exception in CyrstalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.dll - Type Initializer for CyrstalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.MapiMessage threw an exception.
ExcelFormatOptions xlOpts = new ExcelFormatOptions();
            MicrosoftMailDestinationOptions mailOpts =
               ExportOptions.CreateMicrosoftMailDestinationOptions();
            ExportOptions exportOpts = new ExportOptions();
 
 
            mailOpts.MailCCList = "";
            mailOpts.MailMessage = "This is a test";
            mailOpts.MailSubject = "This is a test";
            mailOpts.MailToList = "mweaver@k-and-s.com";
            mailOpts.Password = "12345";
            mailOpts.UserName = "mweaver";
 
            exportOpts.ExportFormatOptions = xlOpts;
            exportOpts.ExportDestinationOptions = mailOpts;
            exportOpts.ExportDestinationType = ExportDestinationType.MicrosoftMail;
            exportOpts.ExportFormatType = ExportFormatType.Excel;
            reportDocument1.Export(exportOpts);

Attached is attached as is from my live project, hoping this may help
Dim SMTPUser As String = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("SMTPUser")
Dim SMTPPass As String = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("SMTPPass")
Dim SMTPEmail As String = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("SMTPEmail")
Dim SMTPFrom As String = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("SMTPFrom")
Dim SMTPServer As String = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("SMTPServer")
Dim objMsg As New MailMessage
Dim objSmtp As New SmtpClient
Dim objSmtpUser As New Net.NetworkCredential(SMTPUser, SMTPPass)
Dim mf As New MyFunction
Dim xFileName As String
Try
  GenRep()
  crReport.ExportToDisk(ExportFormatType.PortableDocFormat, Server.MapPath("mail.pdf"))
  xFileName = Left(RepName, InStr(RepName, ".")) & "pdf"
  System.IO.File.Copy(Server.MapPath("mail.pdf"), Server.MapPath(xFileName), True)
  objMsg.To.Add(txtTo.Text)
  If txtCC.Text <> "" Then
     objMsg.CC.Add(txtCC.Text)
   End If
   objMsg.Subject = txtSub.Text

   End If
   objMsg.Attachments.Add(New Attachment(Server.MapPath(xFileName)))
   objMsg.From = New MailAddress(SMTPEmail, SMTPFrom)
   objSmtp.Host = SMTPServer
   objSmtp.Credentials = objSmtpUser
   objSmtp.Send(objMsg)
   objMsg.Dispose()
   objSmtp = Nothing
   Kill(Server.MapPath(xFileName))
   ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Me.GetType, "", mf.GetMsgBoxScript("Message Sent"))
