how do you save layouts

 

File>Print>Print>Save as PDF

 

You can select the A4 sheet size assuming your Layout is set up for A4.

The way you control its size is to control its size via the "Page Set Up" dialog so that when it prints for paper or PDF it is set up for the target size (if you want a PDF at letter size you parse the layout to that size and then it will scale properly when printed to paper or PDF). You should read the Reference Manual and Users Guide that explain this simple procedure there. It is simple but completely unforgiving if you err.

I can't help you with your email without knowing what email program you use, but simply adding the saved raytrace as an attachment should work fine. Same for the PDFs, or almost any other file for that matter.
