Solution

It is possible to send a document to someone as email within OpenOffice.

All you need to do is to go to File > Send > Document as email. OpenOffice will take a snapshot of your current document, and then start up a "compose new mail" window from your default mail program and attach the snapshot as a attachment. All you need to do is just enter the email address and click send.
You can choose to attach the document as OpenOffice document (.odt), Microsoft words doc (.doc) or as PDF file (.PDF). OpenOffice will automatically convert the snapshot to the format you want.

Note: In addition, the file format uses ZIP compression by default, which makes the attachment file small and compact.
