That's great! I'm glad my instructions actually made sense!

If you're interested, Jerry, you can save a few steps with the
ps2pdf batch file. Try and edit your c:\autoexec.bat file and make sure
that the PATH line includes the entries for the "bin" and "lib"
subdirectories in your ghostscript directory. Reboot your computer.

You can then replace steps 4 and 5 with one step:

4) Type "ps2pdf c:\temp\ c:\temp\email1.pdf"

Let me know if that works.
