.pdf files and email

P: n/a
I have an app (using Access2000) that prints a daily report and sends that
report automatically to a number of email recipients in .snp format. I
would like to change the output format to .pdf because of a number of
problems with recipients and snapshot viewer. I use pdf995 as a .pdf writer.
Would also like to be able to have the email recipient names in a table to
allow easy updating. (They are currently in a macro and need manual
changing, which is beyond most users. The app is located in a very remote
area and direct support for changes is not always practical.) Any help
please?
