Trying to use a data job reference to an data job that executes the email node and get the below error message. Is it possible to use the email node in a data job?
67: Data flow - Job has no external provider steps.

One reason for the error you cite is covered in this usage note from the doc:
You can include an External Data Provider node in the outer data job. This External Data Provider node must be used when you want to create a data job that has an inner data job that reads a data source. If you do not include an External Data Provider node in this scenario, the following error is displayed: Error: Data flow - Job has no external provider steps."
Does that apply to your situation?
Also, are you talking about the "Email and FTP" node for data jobs? If so, that node should work with the set up described here: Email and FTP Node

Yes - in the Data Inputs folder.
Btw -- I will be out of the office after 1:30 EST today. Here is a link to the chapter on Data Jobs, if that will help: Maintaining Data Jobs
