Attach/export HTTP page to email

I have a PHP which is called quite regularly. It provides additional info regarding rows of data on a page. One of the requests is to be able to email this data. (And email this data for multiple rows as a single attachement.)

My logic says I need to call the page on the server (bypassing authentication), render the php to html. Save the output to an HTML file. Then attach and send email. If multiple rows are ticked, it would join the HTML on rendering.

Am I missing anything? Any tips/suggestions?

Am I missing something in the link? Mime covers how I would attach the export, but I would surely still need to generate the file? Is my logic in my original question correct?

I used CURL to save the html output to a temporary file. I then atatched it to an emal. My logic was correct.
