AutoConvert attatchment to PDF and Reply.

I have asked this question before and nobody attempted an answer. I have outlook 2003 and acrobat 6.0. I need to be able to send a file to a certain email address (set up for just this task) and have the attatched file be returned as a pdf. Sounds tough!

Outlook will check that address for mail every 5-10 min. A rule or script needs to exist that will open whatever the attatchment is and print to acrobat printer. I don't think getting this far will be too difficult.

Next I need for the new pdf to be sent back to the same address that just emailed the file (or reply if that would be easier).

I understand the potential for danger in having something that automatically opens any email attatchment so if the solution happens to limit the extentions it will open to a list (mostly just ms office extentions) that would be even better.

Good Luck.

P.S. If you think it would be easier, I would love some php to do the same thing (If that's possible.). I could have a web page that would allow you to upload a document, it would generate the pdf and allow you to download it. Just a thought.

Also, I would love to give more than the 500 points for this if there is a way to. To me this is worth at least a thousand.

this looks like something that could help
http://doc2pdf.sourceforge.net/

if you think it's ok then the only part that needs to be coded is the forwarding from your box to the doc2pdf server and the forwarding to the original sender
