IN teh following code NewOutlookMail is used to send an email using the outlook client.  sub saveme demonstrates a sequence to send a copy of the current file via the temp folder.

It displays the email for edit as currently presented, when happy replace the second line with

    NewOutlookMail "Subject orf email", "INtro Body Text", "name@domain.com", , , True, True, (Environ("temp") & "\" & ThisWorkbook.Name)

Which will send automatically

Sub saveme()

    ThisWorkbook.SaveCopyAs (Environ("temp") & "\" & ThisWorkbook.Name)
    NewOutlookMail "Subject orf email", "INtro Body Text", "name@domain.com", , , False, True, (Environ("temp") & "\" & ThisWorkbook.Name)
    Kill (Environ("temp") & "\" & ThisWorkbook.Name)
    
End Sub

Function NewOutlookMail(strSubject As String, strBody As String, Optional strTo As String, _
                            Optional strCC As String, Optional strBCC As String, Optional SendYN As Boolean = False, _
                            Optional AttachYN As Boolean = False, Optional Attach1 As String) As Boolean
Dim olkApp As Object

    Set olkApp = CreateObject("outlook.application")
    With olkApp.CreateItem(0)
        .To = strTo
'        .replyto = "fred@jdomain.com"
        If strCC <> "" Then .CC = strCC
        If strBCC <> "" Then .BCC = strBCC
        .Subject = strSubject
        .body = strBody
        If AttachYN And Attach1 <> "" Then .Attachments.Add Attach1
        If SendYN Then
            .Send
        Else
