Hi

I want to be able to send unique pdf's to a list of recipients using a text file for the parameters.  The file would contain email address and attachment file path/name.

So usera@xyz.com gets sent filea.pdf, userb@abc.com gets sent file123.pdf etc.  The subject and body of the email will be the same.

Using Outlook 2010 and Exchange 2010.  I can write a program to do it but thought there would already be something out there.  So far I have not been able to find anything that suits.



Thanks

Maybe if you explain more about the overall process, something will fit there.

So the process is throw 200 different pdf's into a folder.  Email 1 file to 200 different users using a text file listing email address/file to send.  The text file can be in any format e.g. csv or fixed length.

It's sending the account statements out so sending the correct file to the correct address is fairly critical.  Although I'm sure if it stuffs up I can convince the boss it was user error Smile.

I would guess some of the 3rd party outlook merge add-ons might give you that. Nice going forward if someone else is maintaining one for the next office version. This looks promising but you will need to ask if they support your scenario: http://www.mapilab.com/outlook/mail_merge/

check out "blat". its a command line mail client. you could use this with some 'dos' commands to parse the text file and send the mails with subject/body/attachment

Thanks for the replies.  I have looked at Mapilab but it will not do what I want.

Blat may work, will look into that.




Thanks again.
