Usage notes:

  • You can use symbol formulas to include job or document properties in the email message. For example, use ${Job.InputFile} in this value to include the input file name and a custom document property such as ${Doc.Custom.AccountNumber} to include an account number.
  • The step supports tags in the HTML 4.01 specification. Support for individual tags varies by email client and browser.
  • You can embed images stored locally by specifying a fully qualified file name. You can embed images on the Internet or a company intranet by specifying a fully qualified URL.
  • You can mix plain text and HTML.
  • Invalid HTML does not cause the step to fail. Ricoh ProcessDirector sends HTML without validating it.
  • Message is a positional job property. For information about using positional job properties, refer to the Information Center.
