    It can be done, but it would be much easier in the long run and more reliable to use an actual SMTP e-mail client. If you're going to use SNDDST, you should test each document before you have to send it out to someone else. When you find ones that don't work, it will take a lot of effort to get them to work. . If you're trying to use SNDDST for this, it means that your system has not been properly configured for SMTP Internet e-mail. In effect, that means it send your document fine. And the second, and the third. But fourth, fifth and sixth might fail. Or they all might fail, or they might send fine for six months and then fail. It will all depend on whether your .PDF files always have only printable ASCII characters or not. . If they don't, they'll fail. . Tom

    You have two general options.
    .
    First, you can start studying the SMTP RFCs until you understand how it works and what its requirements are. That will let you know how elements such as MIME will let you send any kind of document through SMTP. Until you have a fair understanding, there is no good help available.
    .
    But second, you can give up on SNDDST for this kind of work and use an actual SMTP e-mail function. A good way to start is by downloading, installing and using the free MMAIL product. That will handle almost all of your future e-mail needs.
    .
    That second choice is much quicker and easier.
