Ordinarily, emailing the output of a command is easy: you
can do

commandname |mail user at

Test that out and see if it does what you want.

Then you'll need to learn about cron, which is the
job-scheduling command. See the manpage for cron(8) -- which
is to say, type 'man 8 cron'.

Yes, as someone else mentioned, Samba is the canonical
answer here.
