ASP.NET Chart control (sending EMail with embedded chart control image)

I am using the chart control and I am happy with it. My client is now asking me if I can add an email button to my web page an send off an email with the chart included in it. Any ideas how I can do this? Thanks.

The chart component actually generates an image when the chart is requested. It then either persists this image to the file system or simply holds it in memory. That part is configurable.

You can have it generate the chart, then grab the file reference from it. From there you have two choices. Either have your email refer to the the file by it's url reference or embed it within the actual email itself. That's also configurable by the mail client.
