You can save/print the layout with the data as PDF and attached it to your email. The following script steps, "Save Records as PDF" and "Send Email", will be helpful to you.
You may have to do this from a client (filemaker pro) session connected to your server rather than the server. Why do you need to do this from the server?
Thanks very much for the help guys. I was doing what Ritche suggested, but it wasn't working, and when I looked into this I assumed it was because Server doesn't permit generation of PDFs by scripting (which information I found somewhere on Filemaker's website, I think). It emerges that the problem was to do with the location of the PDFs; the newly-generated emails were unable to find the PDF to attach. When I specified the locations for both the PDF to be saved and the email to look for its attachment, the problem was resolved right away. So all seems now to be sorted, thanks very much. I appreciate the prompting which helped solve the issue very much!
