sending smartform to user inbox

Hi,

How do we send a smartform to an SAP user inbox. Can it be done using smartform function module( the one that is generated after the smartform is activated) or should it be done as a separate step, maybe save the smartform as a pdf document in the desktop and subsequently send it as a mail to SAP user inbox. Could anyone throw some light on this matter, if you've done this before.

Regards,

Vijay
