Sure, runfm does batch production, including of PDF and
print output.  It's part of Mif2Go, but it's one of the
many freebies in it, since it works fully with the demo
version (with our blessings):

You do need to install the plugin DLLs, m*.dll, in your
\frame\fminit\plugins dir, because runfm uses them to
communicate with Frame.  You also need to put runfm.exe
in your \windows\system32 dir, but you don't need to
install anything else.  The documentation for runfm is
in Chapter 34, "Converting via runfm", of the User's 
Guide, which is downloadable in a dozen formats on the
same page above.

Note that since you normally invoke runfm from a .bat,
you can readily add any other system commands you please 
to the process.  I'd be surprised if there wasn't a free
utility around to send an email with an attachment from
the command line...  ;-)
