    Question Attach zip file to mail

    I'm trying to send a bunch of generated logfiles via the mail step. I've read the documentation and some threads here and I understood that the file to be attached has to be added to the result set.

    In the "Zipfile" step, I selected the files I want in the archive and on the "advanced" tab I checked "add Zip file to result".

    The next step in my job is the "Mail" step (here I checked "Attach file(s) to message" on the "Attached Files"-tab), but no zipfile is attached. Is selecting the "add Zip file to result"option not enough? Do I have to do something else?

    Thanks for an answer in advance!

    Are you sending the email from a transformation or from a job? The steps are a bit different between the two.

    I've had some weird behaviour with sending email in a job. Have you selected all the options in "Select File Type"? I think files added to result go in General, but try selecting them all and working backwards.

    I wonder with sending email from a step, whether you just provide the file name/s and it'll zip them.

    Thanks for the info. I am using the mail step in a job, will try to select the options.

    Edit: Thanks, selecting "general" did the trick.
