Here is what I have so far that works.
EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail
@profile_name = 'Administrator',
@recipients = 'administrator@somebody.com,
@query = 'USE TopsData
SELECT DB_NAME() AS DbName,
name AS FileName,
size/128.0 AS CurrentSizeMB,  
size/128.0 - CAST(FILEPROPERTY(name, ''SpaceUsed'') AS INT)/128.0 AS FreeSpaceMB
FROM sys.database_files;',
@subject = "Error Log",
@attach_query_result_as_file = 1

I want a 3rd result that tells me the SpaceUsed in the DB mdf file (CurrentSizeMB - FreeSpaceMB = UsedSpaceMB) without the transaction log data.
Soo...it will look something like below:
CurrentSizeMB    FreeSpaceMB   UsedSpaceMB
TIA

If you want to exclude the log then.

EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail
@profile_name = 'Administrator',
@recipients = 'administrator@somebody.com,
@query = 'USE TopsData
SELECT DB_NAME() AS DbName, 
name AS FileName, 
size/128.0 AS CurrentSizeMB,  
size/128.0 - CAST(FILEPROPERTY(name, ''SpaceUsed'') AS INT)/128.0 AS FreeSpaceMB,
CAST(FILEPROPERTY(name, ''SpaceUsed'') AS INT)/128.0 AS SpaceUsed
FROM sys.database_files
WHERE NOT type_desc='LOG';',
@subject = "Error Log",
@attach_query_result_as_file = 1

EvilPostit,
     Using your first example (only modifed the e-mail address before the .com), I recieved the below result in the SSMS 2008 Messages pane:
Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 8
Incorrect syntax near 'SpaceUsed'.
Msg 105, Level 15, State 1, Line 10
Unclosed quotation mark after the character string ',
@subject = "Error Log",
@attach_query_result_as_file = 1

Editing your first example to the below using only single quotes for SpaceUSed (ie. 'SpaceUsed'. The query editor was claiming incorrect syntax with two single quotes [''SpaceUSed''] and using double-quotes resulted in invalid column name),  Looks like this:
EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail
@profile_name = 'Administrator',
@recipients = 'administrator@somebody.com,
@query = 'USE TopsData
SELECT DB_NAME() AS DbName,
name AS FileName,
size/128.0 AS CurrentSizeMB,  
size/128.0 - CAST(FILEPROPERTY(name, 'SpaceUsed') AS INT)/128.0 AS FreeSpaceMB,
CAST(FILEPROPERTY(name, 'SpaceUsed') AS INT)/128.0 AS SpaceUsed
FROM sys.database_files;',
@subject = "Error Log",
@attach_query_result_as_file = 1
This resulted in the following when running the query:
Msg 105, Level 15, State 1, Line 10
Unclosed quotation mark after the character string ',
@subject = "Error Log",
@attach_query_result_as_file = 1

Suggestions?

EvilPostit,
                 NM, put it down to user error during copy/paste process.
Works great!!!

Thanks!
