Sending a file from a folder to another file location & as attachment to Mail server


We have a scenario i.e File to SFTP and Mail. WE have to read a file in AL11 location, and need to send that file to SFTP server. Same copy of the file should be triggered as an attachment in email to the particular user.

Could you please suggest how we can do this?

SMTP is the protocol used. I tried to use "Keep attachment option" checked, then also just receiving email without attachment.

    These are the settings I have on a mail receiver that receives an email with a file attachment:

    make sure your PO system can access your SMTP server from a firewall perspective.
