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);

May be not exactly solution to your problem,
With one of my ASP.NET (VB) I am using
Export and save the file on disk and then send the mail through SMTPclient
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
   If txtMsg.Text <> "" Then
      objMsg.Body = txtMsg.Text
   Else
      objMsg.Body = " "
   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"))
Catch ex As Exception
   ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Me.GetType, "", mf.GetMsgBoxScript(ex.Message))
End Try
