I am going to guess that you don't use XA. If that is the case, not sure why you are here. :)

Anyways. Here are more details on the process:

Within the Host Print dialog, there is the Output tab where you can have it send an Email. For email you can select the type of attachment: PDF, HTML, or TXT.
Normally, if you select PDF, there is a XA program that kicks in to convert the spool file to a PDF that XA then emails out.
There is an option via a User Exit where a different PDF converter can be used, in our case Formtastic.
With that user exit turned on and a little bit of code added, the spool file is handed off to Formtastic to create the PDF. Formtastic then hands the PDF back to XA for it to email off.


Thanks,

When you say host print to email, that normally involves SCS or AFP documents.

Does Formtastic create that or does it gen directly to PCL spool file or PDF ?

We use Formtastic and wanted to hook it in for the Host Print to Email functionality. We have this working, but are having the "issue" where it physically prints AND emails it.
We found KB 1612334 that sounds like another company also had this issue and has a work around by changing the (Retrieve printer file override command) program.

By some small chance is the person who came up with this work around on this list and willing to share some more details on this work around?

Thanks,
Scott Johnson
