Not everything has an official "best practice". But if I were you, I
wouldn't do this. I don't like getting large attachments. What I
recommend instead is to send an e-mail message with the URL for the
generated PDF file.
+1 for that idea from me too. Not everyone reads mail in a "webmail"
environment. If you pull your email on a small phone this is
especially painful. The URL scheme let's the user choose.
