What about something like this?

$Report = Get-VM | Get-Snapshot | Select VM,Name,Description,@{Label="Size";Expression={"{0:N2} GB" -f ($_.SizeGB)}},Created
If (-not $Report)
{ $Report = New-Object PSObject -Property @{
  VM = "No snapshots found on any VM's controlled by $VIServer"
  Name = ""
  Description = ""
  Size = ""
  Created = ""
  }
}
$Report = $Report | Select VM,Name,Description,Size,Created | ConvertTo-Html -Head $Header -PreContent "<p><h2>Snapshot Report - $VIServer</h2></p><br>" | Set-AlternatingRows -CSSEvenClass even -CSSOddClass odd

The HTML report above can be then forwarded to your email using a SMTP client.

Cheers, Paul Wilk

Or you try with this too

Connect-VIServer Servername

$body = Get-Folder foldername | Get-VM | Get-Snapshot | Select Name, VM, SizeMb | Out-String

Send-MailMessage -From "VMware@vmware.com" -To "user@vmware.com" `

  -SmtpServer "name" -Body $body `

  -Subject "Snapshot Report"

from PowerShell you can send email with cmd
