Create PDF files to become e-mail attachments

This feature becomes available when you start writing a new message in Microsoft Outlook or reply to an existing one. It lets you select one or more files from your computer to convert to PDF format and attach to the open mail. PDF files are attached without conversion; you are warned if you select an invalid file and it is skipped.

  1. Attach file to mail as PDF icon Click Attach file to mail as PDF on the Kofax PDF tab in the Outlook message window.

    A File Open dialog box appears.

  2. Browse to a location, select one or more suitable input files, and click Open.

    You cannot update the settings for this process. All pages in the selected document are converted, using the current PDF Create settings.

    In the background, a single PDF file is created for each selected file and attached to the message. No PDF file is created on your local system. If you want copies of these PDF files, use Save Attachments from the Sent Mail folder.

  3. To attach PDF files from other folders, repeat the procedure.
