Transferring AS/400 records through e-mail

I have the assignment here at Baxter to transfer AS/400 reports through e-mail. We have Lotus Notes as our e-mail system. I know there are in the market various alternatives to do this.

Can you make me some recommendations on software that can help me to comply with my objectives and also be cost effective?

My personal choice is the spool manipulation products from Gumbo Software. The one I think you would find to be extremely useful is SpoolMail. Using Its command interface, it is possible to e-mail a Spoolfile to a list of addresses in several different formats RTF, PDF, TIFF and even TXT.

This is a very good product with GREAT technical support.
