    I'd be willing to bet Binary division is set to ON.

    Color is not 4 times harder... it's 65,000 times harder. They call it "TECH MODE" for a reason. I have manual's and firmware for ya, course... you are going to have to earn it.

    You're hitting the 2 MB (2048K) default setting for the maximum email attachment size on the MFP. When the machine hits this limit, it will split the file into multiple .dat files.

    The best thing to do is ask the IT person what the maximum size their server will allow, and set your machine to that. Turning it "off" is generally a bad idea, unless there is no limit on the server.

    BTW... to reassemble the files:

    1). Put all the .dat files in the same folder.
    2). Open a command prompt, and go to that directory.
    3). Type "copy file1.dat + file2.dat + file3.dat myyfile.pdf". (No quotes, and substitute the dummy file names with the real ones.)
    4). That's it! You have now just concatenated the files.

    So, just when is this "old enough to know better" thing supposed to kick in?

    Unfortunately the method from KenB did not work, maybe RRodgers has right, but how do I get it as a pdf file ?

    This is the Long way of doing this. If you can rescan these files and your email client allows large attachments I would change your default file size limitation on your Copier from 2mb to something like 15000kb
    Once multiple emails arrive, select file, save as to save each email as separate *.eml file in a single
    folder. For example, save as C1.eml, C2.eml, C3.eml, and C4.eml in a folder.

    Once all emails are saved to a folder, we will combine files from command prompt as binary data.
    Standard copy command is used i.e. copy C1.eml + C2.eml /b. Refer to the screenshots on the next
    page.

    . Open a command prompt, and go to that directory.
    3). Type "copy file1.eml + file2.eml + file3.eml /b" (No quotes, and substitute the dummy file names with the real ones

    After going through copy commands which copies data into a single *.eml file such as C1.eml, Decode
    Shell Extension program will do the rest by creating a TIF file. To convert simply, right click on first file, in
    this case C1.eml, then select decode from the drop down menu.

    I use the following command at the DOS prompt and it works well:

    copy "part 1_2.dat" + "part 2_2.dat" /b test.eml

    Thanks to all !!

    Kind Regards, Kars Lensen
