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:

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.
