E-mail option while connecting Microsoft Dynamics GP through terminal server

While connectiong Microsoft Dynamics GP through terminal server, what is the best way to handle sending GP reports by e-mail through outlook in local machine.

Victoria may have some ideas, but I'm not aware of any way to e-mail reports directly when GP is on a Terminal Server and Outlook is on the client PC.

Assuming you are referring to standard GP reports, the two options I'm aware of are:

1) On the Terminal Server, save the report to a file on a shared directory (as text or PDF, etc.), then create an e-mail in Outlook and manually attach the file by browsing out to the network share.  Or you could use a mapped user drive in the user's login script so that they can always refer to the same drive letter on both machines.

2) Run Outlook on the Terminal Server and allow the user to send e-mails from the server using the "Send To" button on the GP report window.

Steve's answer is right on.  I am not aware of any way to use GP on a Terminal Server, but have it send the e-mail out of the local machine Outlook application.  

Maybe Citrix has a feature for this, but I do not work with Citrix enough to answer this.  It may also be that even if Citrix has this feature, it will not work with how GP sends mail (assuming you're using the 'Send To' button when a report is on the screen).
