"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can do it with link rather than attachment by using alerts. (On the ribbon)

If you want to include the file as an attachment, mmm, guess we're looking at a SharePoint Designer workflow, or perhaps even a coded solution.

as far as I know there is no out-of-the-box possibility, but you might use either the solution provided by Jamie.
Other option (if you can install custom solutions) would be a free SharePoint workflow activity which enables you to send the email as attachment:
