It's not directly stored in that way.  That value is likely a summation of other values in system tables.

In SQL 2000, I think you have to use dbo.sysindexes to get the relevant sizes.  Note that even a table w/o any index is in sysindexes, with an indid = 0 (0 = heap, 1 = clus index).

Its from dbo.sysfiles and the query involved here:

select sum(convert(bigint,case when status & 64 = 0 then size else 0 end)) dbsize,
sum(convert(bigint,case when status & 64 <> 0 then size else 0 end)) logsize
            from dbo.sysfiles

You can always go to master and look at the code for
sp_spaceused

Yeah, sysindexes wouldn't have log size, only data size.

>> how can sum data + log size

It can be summed like this

select sum(convert(bigint,case when status & 64 = 0 then size else 0 end)) +
sum(convert(bigint,case when status & 64 <> 0 then size else 0 end)) total_size
from dbo.sysfiles

Send the result of the above query using xp_sendmail like:

EXEC xp_sendmail @recipients = 'emailid',
   @query = 'select sum(convert(bigint,case when status & 64 = 0 then size else 0 end)) + sum(convert(bigint,case when status & 64 <> 0 then size else 0 end)) total_size from dbo.sysfiles',
   @subject = 'Result',
   @message = 'Result of the query:',
   @attach_results = 'TRUE', @width = 250
