    all special page breaks and formating is lost when converting spool files to txt files. I use a PDF printer to print to, creates a name and send an email...

    SNDDST is not appropriate for anything but plain text files. I suppose it's technically possible to use SNDDST if you do the appropriate MIME encoding for a non-text attachment and set all appropriate MIME headers, but I don't of anyone who has done it. If you ever need anything but plain text, you need to install either a product or one of the downloadable utilities for SMTP e-mail. SMTP does not allow anything printable text to be sent. Non-text attachments must be encoded into a form such as base-64 encoding and wrapped with headers before they can be sent and received through SMTP. A spooled file containing logos, other images or any non-text control characters cannot be sent directly. That's just the way SMTP works. If you use a text editor (e.g., Notepad) on a PC to open any SMTP e-mail that has non-text attachments, you'll see examples of what must be done before those attachments can be sent. Tom
