Trying to programatically create a Hotspot URL inside an email. The hotspot would point to a location on our networks where the PDF's reside, rather than attaching all PDF's in the email. PDF's are created from our iSeries and stored on the network. When the process is completed, it would create the Hotspot URL (network) and send it out to multiple people.

Software/Hardware used:
iSeries OS400 & Lotus Notes for Email

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Simply format the file location as a url with “file” instead of “http”   For example:

file:\\servername\directoryname\filename.pdf

The client should automatically turn it into a clickable link for you.

If you want to run exe directly which is stored in a shared location, u can try something like this:

file://\\aaa\it-sw\Utilities\Fix.exe
