I am using Telerik Reporting for my Web Application.

With my attached code I can send an email with the report as an attachment.

Is there any way to open MS Outlook and send the attachment?
Private Sub MailReport(report As Telerik.Reporting.Report, from As String, [to] As String, subject As String, body As String)
	Dim reportProcessor As New ReportProcessor()
	Dim result As RenderingResult = reportProcessor.RenderReport("PDF", report, Nothing)
	Dim ms As New MemoryStream(result.DocumentBytes)
	ms.Position = 0
	Dim attachment As New Attachment(ms, report.Name + ".pdf")
	Dim msg As New MailMessage(from, [to], subject, body)
	msg.Attachments.Add(attachment)
	'smtp host is the name or IP of the host computer used for sending the email
	Dim smtpHost As String = "255.255.255.0"
	Dim client As New SmtpClient(smtpHost)
	client.Send(msg)
End Sub
