| Is an "Email attached PDF -to - print" solution possible, where an email
| to a certain address containing a pdf will auto print on the printer?
| I am thinking about the New York Times fax that comes to us by email and
| is the only email we get to that address. Using Redhat 7.3 and a HP
| laserjet.

This is not really related to samba though. You can make a
procmail/maildrop/other MDA rule, which will filter that mail, and have
it run through a script.

We do something similar with reports we get, we strip out the
attachments, uudecode them if necessary, unzip if necessary and dump the
~ file.

Here is an example script you can look at (takes file on stdin, ie from
procmail filter):

You can then just add pdf2ps|lpr on any .pdf attachment.
