I am creating an email using RFC-822 Email Standards that I place in a pickup directory for Outlook to process.  Everything works fine except that I now want to send pdf attachments as part of the email that I create and do not know what to specify.

I create a plain text/html email by specifying the following:
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

What additional code do I need to write to send pdf attachments to the email that I'm creating and sending to the pickup directory for Outlook.

You are going to have an object called "msgOutlook" which will be your email object.  From this object as you can see below you will be able to give your email all the properties that you want including subject and email address etc.

You will then be able to save this emil, or move it to your folder.

To add the attachment you will need the path which is the most important.  

For me I wanted to add the attachment in the email body so I used a position like this

AttachmentPosition = Len("your body text") - 6

But you really need to play around with this cause I was never really happy with it.

to understand all the properties of the Attachment see this http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-au/library/aa210902(office.11).aspx

With msgOutlook
    If Len(AttachmentPath) > 0 Then
    .Save
    .Attachments.Add AttachmentPath, olByValue, AttachmentPosition, AttachmentName
    End If
    .BodyFormat = olFormatRichText
    .Subject = "your subject text"
    .To = strTo
    .body = "your body text"
    .display
End With
