Print Exchange attachments directly
How can I print Exchange attachments (PDF) ?
Today more and more invoices are coming by mail, with EEAttachments you get a handy service which can further process these for you. In this section I will show how to print PDF files directly if they are arriving in your Exchange-Mailbox.
You need a program, which can process PDF files. I use the Sumatra PDF in this example.
With this command you can print a PDF file by Sumatra PDF:
sumatrapdf.exe -print-to-default -silent zuDruckendeDatei.pdf
or if you want to select the printer you can use:
sumatrapdf.exe -print-to "DruckerName" -silent zuDruckendeDatei.pdf
In order to use it by EEAttachments you can enter this line into the field "Run for attachment" followed by %file% as the argument or you can enter a batch file which can do some more with your file, for example it could delete it afterwards.
This is the content of our print_and_delete.bat, in which you have to change the path to your copy of Sumatra PDF.
D:\temp\sumatrapdf.exe -print-to-default %1
del %1 /q
