Convert and save attachments to PDF files

You are here:

You can set Email to PDF add-in to include attachments when converting an email to PDF file in Outlook. There are three ways attachments can be outputted to PDF:

  1. As separate PDF file for each attachment.
  2. Merge all attachments to a one PDF file.
  3. Merge all the attachments along with the email content to one PDF file.

Whether the attachments are Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Images, Web-pages, plain text documents or Compressed Zip, Email MSG or EML files,  Email to PDF add-in would automatically extract and convert all to PDF.

You can choose and customize how attachments are converted to PDF under Email to PDF toolbar > ‘Output Settings’ panel. For instance, to include processing of attachments when exporting the email to PDF, enable the option ‘Export attachments to PDF’.
