Try this:

$replsummary = invoke-expression { cmd.exe /c repadmin.exe /replsummary }
$Body = $replsummary

$to = ""
$from = ""
 Send-MailMessage -SmtpServer -From $from  -To $to -Subject 'repl Summary' -Body $body

if you are using windows 2008 or 2012 then you can achieve this goal by using the "Task Scheduler".
1. create a task to run "repadmin.exe /replsummary > C:\reports\Replication_report.txt".
2. create another task to send the email with using "Replication_report.txt" file as attachment.
Note: every time the task 1 will run it will over write the Replication_report.txt file. After that 2nd task will send it for you.

Hope it will help you.

do you have the C:\reports, seems not, then change the output path of file.
 or just use

repadmin.exe /replsummary > Replication_report.txt

create a batch file with above command. once success, put that into scheduler as task one.
