Thanks for a great tutorial! I've been using the HTML output for a while but had never quite been able to get the e-mail stuff to work until I copied your example.

One gotcha that I ran into several months ago when I first started using MVS to output HTML: Creating the file on the mainframe as EBCDIC and then having the FTP program translate it to ASCII seems to cause random, non-fatal-but-irritating little problems in the downloaded file. I've had consistently perfect luck instead using the TRANTAB=ASCII option in my ODS HTML statement and then downloading the file as binary.

Modifying your example, the e-mail attachments can be sent as binary as follows:

Attach = ('' Ext='xls' ct='application/octet-stream' '' Ext='doc' ct='application/octet-stream' '' Ext='html' ct='application/octet-stream')

"ct" is shorthand for "Content_Type".
