Attaching PDF in Email

After I have converted a file to PDF, how then do I go about attaching that file in an email?

Hi Joshua,
I do not have enough information about your workflow so I am writing very general ways to attach your converted PDF files to your email.
1. After converting your file to PDF using either https://createpdf.acrobat.com/sigin.html or Adobe Reader X or XI version, download the PDF file to your computer.
2. Open your email application and create a new email
3. Select "Attache File" or "Attachement"(depens on email application) then select your PDF file.
Please let me know this does not help you.
Thank you.

  • Unable to attach PDF to email (Outlook for Mac 2011)

    We are pushing out software upgrades for CS5 and MS Office 2011 for Mac. We've discoverd that we can't use the Attach to email feature in Acrobat. The spinning rainbow wheel pops up for about a minute, and then Acrobat is non-responsive and we have to force quit. We can still drag and drop an attachment so we have a viable workaround but obviously we'd like to be able to use the automated feature.
    All software is up-to-date.
    In the preferences panel of Outlook, we have selected Outlook to be the default mail application.
    As a sidenote, this feature doesn't work with Acobat X beta either. However, in the beta version of Acrobat X, if we declare Apple's mail application to be the default, it works fine. Unfortunately we use the Office suite as part of our enterprise system, so that's what we need to work with.
    Has anyone else experienced this? I've logged a ticket with Adobe but I haven't heard back from them yet.
    Thanks for any advise.

    Take the bhama way
    figured out how to make it work.  I am using Adobe Acrobat X Pro (mac)
    and MS Outlook for Mac 2011.
    For those who are interested, this is what I did:
    1. Create a folder on desktop to save your pdf¹s files you want to email
    to.  Mine is named, "PDF to Email"
    2. Open Automator, create a "Folder Action"
    3. At the top, "Choose Folder", choose your newly created folder on the
    desktop
    4. Choose the "Rename Finder Items" action from the action list.  I chose,
    "Don¹t Add" on the add a Copy Finder Items Action menu.
    5. On the "Add Date or Time to Finder Item Names" I chose, "Name Single
    Item" from the first drop down menu.
    6. Click on "Options" at the bottom of that window to select the "Show
    this action when the workflow runs" so you can rename your         file
    something other than the Acrobat default.
    7. Choose the "Create New Outlook Mail Message" from the action list and
    add it below the "Name Single Item in Finder Item Names"
    8. Choose "File>Save As" and give your file a name.  Mine is, "PDF to
    Email".
    9. Close Automator
    10. Open Acrobat X Pro.
    11. Go to "File>Action Wizard>Create New Action"
    12. Here you choose, "Save to>A Folder on my computer"
    13. Choose the folder on the desktop that we saved earlier
    14. Save the file, with the action name you will remember.
    Now when you are in Acrobat X Pro and you want to send that .pdf file via
    Outlook for Mac 2011, follow the steps below.
    With the file you want to email open, go to "File>Action Wizard>(Action
    you created) Mine is "PDF to Email".  It will take a few seconds, but you
    will get an "Action Completed".  You will get a pop up that allows you to
    name/rename the file. Then it should open your Outlook with your .pdf
    attached and ready for sending.
    You might need to tweak the actions to suit your needs, but this should
    work for you.

  • Trouble attaching pdf to email

    Hi,
    I have a pdf file I want to attach to an email. When I try to attach it I get an out of bounds exception. It emails the file but I get an error and the pdf is actually empty. I'm guessing it's not actually adding the pdf, it's just attaching a blank file. Am I right in that I need to use the ByteArrayInputStream to read the file in for attaching? I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong or how to fix the dang thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
         MimeBodyPart file_part2 = null;
                        String pdf2Name = "dmtpage2.pdf";
                        String pdf2Dir = "C:\\\\lib";
                        System.out.println("Getting page 2: " + pdf2Name);
                        FileInputStream inFile = new FileInputStream(pdf2Dir + "\\\\" + pdf2Name);
                        System.out.println("set file to stream");     
                        DataInputStream pdfFile = new DataInputStream (inFile);
                        System.out.println("set file to stream");                                             
                        byte[] streamInfo = new byte[pdfFile.available()];
                        pdfFile.read(streamInfo);
                        ByteArrayInputStream inputStream = new ByteArrayInputStream(streamInfo);
                        file_part2 = new MimeBodyPart(new InternetHeaders(), streamInfo);
                        System.out.println("Size of attachment is: " + streamInfo.length);
                        file_part2.setDisposition(Part.ATTACHMENT);
                        file_part2.setHeader("Content-Transfer-Encoding", contentEncoding);
                        attachmentName = pdf2Name;
                        if (attachmentName != null) {
                             file_part2.setFileName(attachmentName);
                             System.out.println("File name is " + attachmentName);
                             file_part2.setDescription(attachmentName);
                             System.out.println("Set description");
                             mp.addBodyPart(file_part2);
                             System.out.println("Added page 2");
                        }     

    Sorry about not formatting the code. I'll re-insert. Thank you so much for replying so quickly :)
    It's not throwing an exception now. No errors. It attaches the file but when you try to open it, adobe says it cannot open the file because "the file has been corrupted (for example, it was sent as an email attachment and wasn't properly decoded)".
    Why do I even have to open the file? I don't understand why I cannot just point to the file and attach it. From the output it seems like it is getting the file as the attach size isn't 0.
    Oh, DrClap I get a compile error if I don't put the 4 slashes.
    This is the the server output:
    Getting page 2: dmtpage2.pdf
    set file to stream
    set file to stream
    Size of attachment is: 407835
    File name is dmtpage2.pdf
    Set description
    Added page 2
    here's the code again
                        MimeBodyPart file_part2 = null;
                        String pdf2Name = "dmtpage2.pdf";
                        String pdf2Dir = "C:\\\\usco-dir\\\\lib";
                        System.out.println("Getting page 2: " + pdf2Name);
                        FileInputStream inFile = new FileInputStream(pdf2Dir + "\\\\" + pdf2Name);
                        System.out.println("set file to stream");     
                        DataInputStream pdfFile = new DataInputStream (inFile);
                        System.out.println("set file to stream");                                             
                        byte[] streamInfo = new byte[pdfFile.available()];
                        pdfFile.read(streamInfo);
                        ByteArrayInputStream inputStream = new ByteArrayInputStream(streamInfo);
                        file_part2 = new MimeBodyPart(new InternetHeaders(), streamInfo);
                        System.out.println("Size of attachment is: " + streamInfo.length);
                        file_part2.setDisposition(Part.ATTACHMENT);
                        file_part2.setHeader("Content-Transfer-Encoding", contentEncoding);
                        attachmentName = pdf2Name;
                        if (attachmentName != null) {
                             file_part2.setFileName(attachmentName);
                             System.out.println("File name is " + attachmentName);
                             file_part2.setDescription(attachmentName);
                             System.out.println("Set description");
                             mp.addBodyPart(file_part2);
                             System.out.println("Added page 2");

  • Automator attaching PDF to email twice

    I need to set up an Automator action to automatically attach PDF files to an email and send.
    I've tried using a Folder Action, but the action is triggered twice and sends two copies of the email.
    I've tried creating a Workflow to be triggered by a Hazel rule, but this time one email is sent with two copies of the PDF attached!
    Any suggestions very welcome!

    Folder Action approach:

  • Attaching PDFs to emails

    When creating a PDF of a MSWord document in File>Print>Save as PDF, the document gets saved correctly, but when added as an attachment to an email the entire document appears, not just the Adobe logo, as was always the case earlier. I've tried testing with earlier docs and a PDF logo appears, but now always the entire document. I use MS Word for Mac 2001 version 11.5.6. Documents attached to emails as docs show just the Word logo, as they should, not the entire document. So the problem is PDFs.
    Mike

    Note that this only controls how it looks to you... how it looks on the other end is completely up to the recipient's e-mail client and the preferences they have chosen.

  • Cannot attach pdf to email or fetch

    I have one pdf that will not attach to my email or upload to fetch. I get this message when I try to attach to email: "Internal Server Error. The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. Please contact the server administrator, [email protected] and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error." And I get this error when I upload to fetch: "Fetch could not put...because the ftp server encountered an error accessing a file or folder." I sent a note to my email provider and they tested and had no problem. I assume the problem is with this specific pdf but I can't figure it out. It is only 128 kb. I exported a new pdf from indesign, but still does not work. Previous pdf versions of this Indesign file also will not attach, though they have before. And other non related pdfs attach just fine. Any ideas?

    Maybe you have some directory damage. If you know how to run fsck in unix single user mode, that is what I would recommend. If not I'd recommend booting from your system dvd and running disk  utility to see if there is a problem with your hard disk.

  • Attach pdf to email and use text from field in body

    I'm looking to create a fillable form with a 'submit' button at the bottom.  Upon clicking the submit button, I would like an e-mail window to open with a pre-defined recipient, and the pdf attached.  I've found code to accomplish this using this.mailDoc()
    However:
    I'm also hoping to get the text from the "Name" field of my form and use it in the body of the e-mail.
    I've found the following code in another post, which appears to work for this:
    var cClientName = this.getField("ClientName").value;
    var cAddress = this.getField("Address").value;
    var cBody = "Client Information:\n\n";
    cBody += "Client Name: " + cClientName + "\n";
    cBody += "Address: " + cAddress + "\n";
    var myURL = "mailto:[email protected]?subject=Client Info&body=";
    myURL += cBody;
    app.launchURL(myURL, true);
    That will open an e-mail window with a body containing the data from AcroForm fields named "ClientName" and "Address".
    The problem is, that this code will not attach the pdf.
    How can I get the best of both worlds?
    Thanks!

    You don't need launchURL to achieve that. mailDoc is capable of setting the
    subject line, email body, recipients lists, etc.
    See this tutorial for a detailed explanation:

  • Reader X: Attaching PDF to email in Outlook 2003

    Since installing Reader X, it takes several minutes to attach a PDF to an email when using Outlook 2003 (installed on Windows XP SP3, with Outlook and Windows fully patched, running McAfee VirusScan for AV).
    This occurs with any pdf document, regardless of size (all my tests have been on documents less than 70KB, attached from the local hard drive).  Attaching any other file format is unaffected and only takes a second.
    This problem does not occur for anyone that is using Outlook 2010.
    Can anyone advise what is causing this / how to fix?
    Thanks

    The only solutions I have found are to either downgrade Adobe Reader to 9.3.4 or upgrade Office to at least 2007
    Not really the best solutions - would prefer a proper fix.

  • Adobe 9 attaching pdf to email locks computer

    When I try to attach a pdf to an email using adobe 9, it locks up my computer.  I have at least ten end users that are experiencing the same problem.  This is an intermittant problem, sometimes it attaches and emails fine, other times it locks up the computer.  This happens on outlook 2003 and outlook 2010.  The operating system is windows 7, server 2008r2 and windows xp.

    Yes Outlook is the default client within adobe.
    i have found the fix which is a registry setting change. details below
    1. Create registry Key
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Outlook(if not there, create)
    2. Create String value: Bitness
    3. Set the string value for Bitness to: x64
    I hope this helps all thos having the same issue. this resolves the error of Outlook is not the default mail client and also allows you to use thw send to email function.
    Kind regards

  • AA XI Standard: No "Share" button to simply attach pdf to email without asking for review and comment?

    In AA X, there was a "Share" button which would allow me to attach a copy of the current pdf to an email to be sent out. The pdf wouldn't be for "review" or "comment." Just a plain, vanilla, "Here's a copy of a document."
    I can't find that capability in XI Standard. I found a way to send for comment and review. How can I just send? (Other than creating an email in my client (Outlook) and then attaching from there, which then requires me to navigate to the desired pdf).
    Many thanks.
    Ken

    Vikrantt,
    Thanks for your response. However that's not exactly what I'm looking for. Doing that invites the recipient to comment. As my original post said, I'm not looking to invite comments on the document. I just want to send it by email, as I could with Acrobat X.
    Is there no way to do that simply? As my original post said, the only way I can see is to create an email in Outlook and then attach a file, which means I have to navigate to the location where the pdf is stored. A lot of extra steps.
    Thanks.
    Ken

  • Attaching pdf to email

    When I try to attach a pdf document to an email, instead of attaching the document, the text from the document appears in the body of the email.  How do I get it to attach as a pdf?

    I thought it stayed visible as well, but I tested it twice and the recipient only sees the PDF logo and not the full document.  I'm trying to actually keep the full document open so need the opposite to happen.

  • Attaching PDF to Email Issue

    When I attach certain PDF files to an email, sometimes the first page is viewable in the email. How do I eliminate this?

  • Attaching pdf in email msg

    Simple question.  How can i attach a pdf file as an attachment in email--ie, NOT have the pdf file display in its entirety in the body of the email? Thanks.

    Have you tried clicking and dragging your pdf into the body of your message to see if that works? Either way, rest assured that when you email your pdf, it will appear as an attachment to the recipient.

  • When I attach PDF to an email, it uses the wrong email address

    I recently added an email account to my Outlook.  It is not the default email account, but Acrobat defaults to that address whenever I attach a PDF to an email.  Within Acrobat, the Identity under Preferences includes the correct email address.  My MS Office applications use my correct, default email address when send from them.  In Windows, the correct email is set at the default email and Outlook is my default email application.  It is only Acrobat that defaults to the wrong email account.  How can I fix this?
    I am using Acrobat 9 Standard
    I attach PDFs to email my clicking on the envelop icon.  A new message in outlook automatically opens, but the "From" field in the new email message contains the wrong email address. I have also tried File/Attach to Email with the same results.

    You are facing this error because Outlook is your default email Client and you have configured it for different e-mail Address than the one which you intend to send mail from.
    So i would recommend you to either Add the other e-mail account( The one from which you want to send file)  in outlook so that you have a choice while sending the file.
    OR
    You can remove the currently configured e-mail account from outlook, and reconfigure outlook for that e-mail address which you want to use for file sending purpose.
    P.S.- Acrobat will always use the e-mail address associated with your Default e-mail Client ( Outlook in your case.)
    Hope that answers your question. Please revert back for any other query or assistance.

  • I am unable to attach PDFs to Hotmail/Outlook email using my FF browser today. Never had issue before today.

    1. I am unable to attach pdfs today in Outlook/Hotmail email using my Firefox browser (27.0.1). I keep getting an error message that says, "The file is not a picture and can't be inserted inline." I do not understand why I keep getting this error message. I am not attempting to insert an image. I am selecting to Insert Files as Attachments from the drop down menu.
    No matter how many times I attempt to attach various pdfs to my emails today using Firefox as my browser, I keep getting this same error message. I have cleared the cache, cleared all cookies, cleared all history, signed out of my Hotmail/Outlook account, signed back in, restarted computer, etc., to no avail. Same problem.
    2. I switched to my Safari browser, and have no problem attaching pdfs in my Hotmail/Outlook email account. The pdfs are attaching perfectly as usual. My emails are being sent normally with the attachments. The attached pdfs are being received and are opening perfectly as intended.
    3. Why am I unable to attach files with Firefox today? Firefox is my browser of choice and I have used it with my Hotmail/Outlook email account without any problems, till today. Please help me! Thank you!

    Thank you jscher2000. Yes my PDFs do contain the .pdf extension. I tried your excellent idea to utilize the drag and drop method, but I still get the same error message with PDFs. I have no problem attaching photos or Word documents with either method; just PDFs.
    For further diagnostics, I started composing my email in Safari, attached all my pdfs and saved my email as a Draft.  I then went to Firefox, opened the draft to continue working on it, and voila!  There are all the pdfs I attached previously while in Safari.  I was able to send the email with attachments through Firefox with no issues. The attachments went through and were able to be opened.
    I am mystified, as Firefox has been trouble-free with my email account, and I have never had this particular issue till today. I made no changes to anything else on my computer, but I did notice very late last night that Outlook had one of those typical messages at the top of my Inbox to refresh my browser since Outlook had been updated. I refreshed and shut down for the night, and when I rebooted this morning that is when I discovered this brand new glitch with attachments. I'm assuming this has something to do their last update.
