You can do it by customizing the print settings of the GridView. To do this BaseView.PrintInitialize event is handled and there you are able to get the PrintingSystem associated with the gridview.

private void btnPrintPreview_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    // Check whether the GridControl can be previewed.
    if (!gridControl1.IsPrintingAvailable)
        MessageBox.Show("The 'DevExpress.XtraPrinting' library is not found", "Error");

    // Open the Preview window.

private void gridView1_PrintInitialize(object sender, DevExpress.XtraGrid.Views.Base.PrintInitializeEventArgs e)
    PrintingSystemBase pb = e.PrintingSystem as PrintingSystemBase;            
    pb.SetCommandVisibility(PrintingSystemCommand.SendPdf, CommandVisibility.None);
    pb.SetCommandVisibility(PrintingSystemCommand.SendTxt, CommandVisibility.None);
    pb.SetCommandVisibility(PrintingSystemCommand.SendRtf, CommandVisibility.None);
    pb.SetCommandVisibility(PrintingSystemCommand.SendXls, CommandVisibility.None);
    pb.SetCommandVisibility(PrintingSystemCommand.SendMht, CommandVisibility.None);
    pb.SetCommandVisibility(PrintingSystemCommand.SendXlsx, CommandVisibility.None);
    pb.SetCommandVisibility(PrintingSystemCommand.SendCsv, CommandVisibility.None);
    pb.SetCommandVisibility(PrintingSystemCommand.SendGraphic, CommandVisibility.None);

After disabling these command "SendTo" button get disabled.
