    Yes, you can do this. It would make a good episode, actually.
    Here are the basics:
    Run Automator and create a service. Set the input to be files or folders, or a specific thing like an image or document. Set it to work in the Finder.
    Then you just need to add the actions New Mail Message and Add Attachments to Front Message.
    Save it with a good name, like “Attach File to New Message.” You should then see it appear when you right click on a file in the Finder.
