Hiya folks.

We're looking for some sort of plugin that can be used, hopefully on our Exchange 2010 server, or elsewhere if necessary, to convert assorted documents to PDF automatically as items are delivered. These document types would include almost any image type (png, jpg, tiff, bmp for the most part) as well as doc, docx, xls, xlsx and txt.

Currently all of these are run through our Faxback server for document conversion. This is increasingly burdensome as the volume grows and makes a movement to VOIP faxing impossible because VOIP faxing tends to be slower.

I'm asking this in my capacity as an Exchange Admin, but our department head is a CF programmer, so any suggestions for something he might be able to do at the web server level (our core app is a Java web app) would also be welcome.

Thanks in advance,
