Using a PDF as the body of an email

8 - Asteroid

I am trying to use a PDF as the body of my email. I am pulling this file and another PDF as an attachment from a folder as using the directory input to read the files.


The PDF attachment works just fine using the file path as a reference, but when i try to do the same with body of the email it just reads the file path and uses that as the body instead of the PDF file.

The idea is to extract the content of the PDF and use it for the body of the email.


Kind regards,
