AutoDocMail: Sending Emails via Microsoft Outlook
Overview
AutoDocMail provides multiple emailing methods for sending PDF documents generated from the mail merge process. The most convenient method is to send emails via Microsoft Outlook application. If you already have Outlook installed on the computer, then you easily use it to send emails from AutoDocMail. The advantages of this method are:
  • Use already configured email accounts, no need for separate account setup.
  • All emails will be stored in Outlook’s “Sent” folder and easily accessible/searchable if necessary.
  • Emails are handled by Microsoft Outlook with all options applied (signatures, security, encryption).
  • Emailing is done in the background while you can continue using Adobe Acrobat without waiting for emailing to finish.
  • Stop/resume emailing by switching Outlook online/offline.
