    Yes, this is fine as written.

    Nope, although someone reading carefully can tell what you're trying to say.

    "I have attached a short summary to this email" (You're fine up to here.) "that" (Here's where it goes wrong. The word "that" refers to the last noun, which is "email." The email doesn't outline anything, the summary does.) "outlines ways we can support your important mission."

    A fast one-pass rewrite might be:

     I have attached to this email a short summary that outlines ways we can support your important mission.
