I'm surprised by the negative comments about this app. It's a neat little program that does a great job and works flawlessly. I send a lot of filemaker pages by email and it's quite tedious and untidy using Mail. Email PDF is worth the small price asked.

This script actually launches a mini email-app that the user has to configure. The only possible benefit of this over Apple's script, I suppose, is if you don't want your users using ANY email app at all. Otherwise the Apple script is much faster, and doesn't require any custom configuration.

I'm confused - OS X has a built in applescript print function -"save pdf to new mail", which can be modified to work with any email app. What does this have over that?

This program was first requested by the Director of IT at a local newspaper. Like you said they had a applescript doing it for them, going into Entourage not Mail, and sending it as an attachment. Many companies have policies for what software can be used and managed on their systems, Apple's Mail is not on many of these due to what ever shortcomings of Mail or management. As you should already know Entourage isn't the fastest, easiest or most stable program to use and learn but it does have it's foothold in MS driven companies. For what ever reasons, it was a big problem keeping his 30+ graphic artist sending from the right accounts with the right return to address and requested a way for them to send without anymore interaction then placing in the email to send to. This is a time saving application meant to help large workflow's save every second they can. I recommend it to anyone wanting to save time by working and not writing scripts.

This developer is a gentleman who takes time to make perfectly clear what his target market is and what he has to offer to that target market. He has been very gracious and timely in giving his time responding to the posts here on MacUpdate regarding his application and this is much appreciated. Everyone that needs this app should pony up the money, ASAP. Support developers like this one.

If you a just looking for a program to email PDF's or save them to a Folder without the "standalone" features or expense of this, you might want to take a look at PDF U. It's free and has been around for quite a while.

PDF U is not free it is shareware just like mine, they just haven't set a price on their application by asking for donations. Also they are just providing scripts to work with your email program which is why my program was requested in the first place. If you think 20 dollars is too much then think about this. If you spend more than 3 hours at minimum wage trying to write or make a script work for you, you just paid for my program.

I think a certain distinction exists between the cost of the two, knowing the developer of PDF U as I do, I am fairly certain that there is no nagscreen or limitation to using his software(s). He asks for a donation but does not demand any payment. In contrast, your software does have a definitive pricetag and may or may not have restrictions on its usage, I do not know. But I feel certain that the differences are there and should be further elucidated. Thanks.

Good point, but that doesn't make the time spent on this application any less valuable. Also the fee is for a site license, i.e. buy one copy and use on all your computers. If you are a single user with simple needs PDF U looks like a great option, if you have a large workflow involving employees that can't follow instructions try Email PDF.

I have found that PDF U also has some very nice scripts for working with other programs, not just email. So I would have to recommend it for anyone working in a PDF workflow.

Sure you could use this applescript but you're still stuck with user interaction and the use of Apple's Mail program. The whole reason this program was made was because of a request by a frustrated IT director that wanted to stop his employees from send their proofs from their own mail accounts. Try reading the last comment before posting your own next time.

Get the basic functionality with this script from apple: on open these_items try set this_file to item 1 of these_items tell application "Finder" set the file_name to the name of this_file set the parent_folder to (the container of this_file) as alias end tell tell application (path to frontmost application as string) repeat display dialog "Enter a name for file:" default answer file_name set this_name to the text returned of the result if this_name is not "" then exit repeat end repeat end tell tell application "Finder" set the name of this_file to this_name set the target_file to ¬ (document file this_name of the parent_folder) as alias end tell tell application "Mail" set the new_message to ¬ (make new outgoing message with properties ¬ {visible:true, content:" "}) tell the new_message tell content make new attachment with properties ¬ {file name:target_file} at ¬ before the first character end tell end tell end tell on error error_message number error_number if the error_number is not -128 then tell application (path to frontmost application as string) display dialog error_message buttons {"OK"} default button 1 end tell else tell application "Finder" to delete parent_folder end if end try end open

Have not tried this, but it seems a little expensive. Could you not just install another email program and put a link to it in /Library/PDF Serives/ ??? That said, I have not tried it so this could be the most amazing program around. It just sounds like a lot of money for what it dose. ( at least it is shareware though ) ie try before you buy.

and I quote from the text in the description above: "The main request was for a program to be separate from the default mail programs.... Also when you use an alias to the mail programs they don't delete the print jobs, one more step to do. The firms found it easer to have something that could send under a common address with a saved standard response."
