See the FAQ in this section titled:

How can I send an Email using OUTLOOK from VFP?

RE: HOW TO EMAIL A FILE WITHIN FOXPRO

Do you have Outlook available?  If so it's pretty easy.  Are you figuring on attaching the file or incorporating it into the body of the e-mail?  

I've got Outlook 2002 and there's a help file named VBAOL10.chm.  Different versions of Outlook will have different names.  Just search for VBAOL*.  This help file will show the details on how to automate Outlook.  Bear in mind that it's written for VBA so there will have to be a little syntax translation to make it work in VFP.  If you want samples, just ask.  

Outlook express, unfortunately, can't be automated, so you'll have to go another route.  I believe there's also a strictly VFP mail .dll, but I haven't used it, so I'll leave it to someone else to explain.
