Sending a PDF via E-Mail

 

Step 1

Click on the E-Mail Tab.

Step 2

Enter E-Mail Information.

Enter the following information: E-Mail addresses, Subject, and Message Text.

Tip: PDF reDirect Pro will remember the addresses that you have used in the past. Simply click on the little address book icon () to bring up a dialog box where you can point-and-click to select addressees.

 

 

Step 3

Enter the Filename

Step 4

Send Your E-Mail by clicking on the "Send" button.

Tip: if you are sending your message via an SMTP server rather than through Outlook or Outlook Express, include your own address in the BCC ("Blind Carbon Copy") box. This will ensure that you get a copy of the e-mail.

Note: Before sending an e-mail, make sure you have entered the address of your e-mail service provider in the Preferences box (see next step)

Step 5

Preferences.

Click on this button to edit your E-Mail preferences.

  • Outgoing Mail Server: Lets you choose between using an internet e-mail account that uses the SMTP protocol, or using your settings stored in Outlook or Outlook Express (MAPI).

    • Type: MAPI or SMTP

    • Draft using Outlook Form allows you to use a standard Outlook or Outlook Express E-Mail Form which will be shown after clicking on the "Send" button on the main dialog box.

    • Path to SMTP: only applies if you chose to use a "SMTP" server. The path (or address) is given by your service provider and is generally of the following form:

    smtp.yourprovider.com

    • Port: the default value for the SMTP port is 25. Only change this number if your SMTP Server is on a non-standard port.

  • Authentication: Some Mail Servers require you to authenticate yourself. Enter the information here as given to you by your service provider or your IT department.

    • Remember my Password: stores your password on the hard drive for future retrieval to save you the time of typing it back in. Your password is encrypted from prying eyes, and though not impossible, it would take some effort on someone's part to decrypt. Use this feature at your own risk.

NOTE: Home users using Outlook Express will not have to specify a username or password (unless you have setup individual accounts with passwords set)
