I need instructions on how to send email attachement in PDF format from iSeries. I tried to copy a spool to the shared folder, change extension to .DPF and email it using SNDDST; When I received the email it looks like I received an attachhment with pdf format. But file cannot be opened. Please give me details on how to used this feature.

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

You need a third party utility like “SpoolIT” by Asymex Ltd that converts an AS/400 spool file to any imaginable PC report files (Word, Excel, etc) including PDF. Not a cheap solution though.

    Simple comment -- SNDDST is the wrong tool for the job. SNDDST can be used to create and send basic text e-mails, but it has no good way to send non-text attachments. The work needed to convert non-text attachments for SNDDST is more difficult than for a real SMTP client function, and the extra work to make SNDDST functional for SMTP is added to the work that still has to be done for the SMTP server itself. Why add extra work onto the project? Start with SMTP tools and stick with them all the way through. Except for basic text, ignore SNDDST. It's simply the wrong tool. Tom
