I have a user who is running a custom application written sometime last century...  It runs in a DOS prompt under XP.  
The application does some calculations and prints reports of these on a printer hooked up to LPT1.  It would be very beneficial if the print somehow could be routed to a file so it could be e-mailed.
Anybody out there with ideas?
