Is there an option or mod that when a customers order status has changed (or even a brand new order), instead of the invoice being included in the body of the e-mail (HTML) it is sent as an attachment as a PDF?

In customers account > orders they can download invoice. Some of your email could be blocked as viruses are spreading by pdf files also.
This is an old post I know, but not anymore.
I know the issue regarding having attachments in the order notifications emails, due to emails now being a crippled communication method.
I believe the way to do it now to avoid this issue is to have a link to the pdf in the notification email.
So need to include code that automatically generates the link in the email.
Has anyone done this?
Hi. I really need this too. In addition to sending invoice, I want to send “Terms & Conditions” info as PDF file attached email or save it in a directory as a file after customer purchases. Is there a way to do this?
Start with editing skins/[YOURSKINS]/mail/orders/invoice.tpl
Gee … Hans thanks for the detailed explanation…
Ive gotten around this issue to some extent by including a link in the Order Status > E-mail header , which is already shown in the invoice page. This link to the sign-in page has a return url to the Orders page so that as soon as the customer signs-in, the My account> orders page opens.
Theres an Print to PDF link on the order details page, but I also include a link to this in the invoice email.
I get less enquiries asking for PDF invoices now, and the emails are less often blocked as spam because there are no pdf’s attached .
