View Full Version : Automatic printing of email atachments

11-07-2002, 03:55 PM
I've been doing some research for a client who wants documents sent (emailed/whatever) from their accounting system to a remote location and then printed automatically, ie without human intervention.

Can anyone suggest any way to achieve this result via the web/email?

I've come across mailrules, but it is not clear whether automatic printing of attachments is possible. Has anyone used mailrules for this, if so how?

I have no knowledge of this apart from knowing that it exists: Internet Printing Protocol. Try a search on that (or IPP). Of course a VPN would handle it too ... just like a shared printer.

Thanks Graham, I also came across www.printeron.net which offers a new service; you can set up a printer driver which essentially prints to another printer anywhere in the worls, its just another printer in your drop-down list of printers. Neat solution especially for larger corporates and multi-location users.

What is the accounting software?
