Send image of chart via Lotus notes

Hi Guys

I have a QV Dashboard, I wish to :

Send a mail to a specific receipient with an image of the dashboard as the body of the mail.

I am currently using a code in Excel that attaches my chart to a mail and sends it via Lotus Notes, Basically I am firstly looking for advice how to best amend this to utilise in QV - and attach it to a button and ---( if that works perhaps make it fire on the value of a chart --- if possible !!!)

Can anyone help please ?

Thanks
