How can I send PDF files as email attachments from CICS?


To send a PDF file as an email attachment from CICS, create a temp storage queue for the routing information ($FAXIT records). As with any email, you will need the $FAXIT1 record for the email subject, a $FAXIT2 for the sender's name, and a $FAXIT5 for the receiving and sending email addresses. To send the listing as a PDF attachment set the TS-Message-Format field to 'P'. Note that this is the only change required to change the message format to PDF. You can also set it to 'R' for RTF format.
