Well we would not be sending the notification in an attachment, but there are times when it would be nice to send a

Nice for WHO? There is absolutely no need to export something as simple as a list of circuit IDs as a pdf. Use plain text. Ditto for the rest of your exported DOCs.

When there are exceptions, when you need to include an image (sparingly, not because marketing thought it was a good idea to bling up all your emails), or a table, send in HTML with plain text. Don't make the recipient start up another program to open an attachment.
