Mocom AutoMail

Description

Mocom AutoMail is an email automation system, that uses a source PDF or simple text script to send complex emails with PDF attachments. AutoMail enables rapid deployment of email facilities for existing applications, such as Syspro, Omis or any application that can produce a PDF report or output a custom text file.

AutoMail runs as a Windows service that monitors a specified directory for PDF or script files that provide instructions for the creation and sending of emails. The source application generates a report (e.g. Crystal or SQL reports) which is outputted as a PDF file containing content pages separated by header pages. When the PDF file is dropped in the AutoMail folder, AutoMail will parse the header pages in the file and create emails using the commands in the header pages, with the specific content pages attached.

Example

A company would like to send out invoices to its customers (and purchase orders to its suppliers) via email. However the information for this is stored in their accounts system that doesn't provide this facility.


They install Mocom AutoMail and using their accounts package's reporting facility they create a report that generate the invoices. Inbetween each invoice is a header page that provide commands (and variables) to AutoMail (e.g. :TO joe@bloggs.com, :SUBJECT invoice abc123).


They generate the report in PDF format and drop the file in the folder on the AutoMail server. AutoMail picks up the PDF file, splits in into individual attachments, generates the email body using the supplied information and a master template, attaches the relevant PDF files to the email and sends it to the supplied address.
