    Hi,

    I've created a new Sample Solution for Bulk Sending Invoice PDFs as E-Mail Attachment with C# Command Line Application.
    Check out the Link:

    Hi Otto,

    Thank you for your effort and the time to post your solution for other community members.

    We just want to recommend you to use expressions instead of events:
    The bonus of the Expression engine is it will validate internally the given data before processing it. Also data manipulation to be separated in its own Data Access Layer, and leave the report to communicate with the DAL. All operations for data retrieval can be placed in the DAL and controlled from outside with parameters mapped to report parameters. This approach is preferable with complex reports as issues sources are easily tracked between layers and the maintenance of reports on upgrade is reduced to updating references and checking the report designer.

    Also we have some considerations about working with events as that you need to work with processing items instead of their definitions. For example check the Using Report Events article.

    We updated your Telerik points to thank you once again. We will be glad to see more posts from you.

    Regards,
    Stef

    Otto, Thanks!
    This seems to use the email server with credentials to do the bulk emails with attachment.
    1. Have you done the same (bulk send) using outlook client and emailing using the existing logged in account - instead of providing login credentials? 
    2. We are also trying to do this for a single email with attachment.. preferably, the email opens with attachment in the existing outlook account- this will allow the user to edit the text before sending it out.

    If you have any thoughts, do let us know! Thanks in advance!
