Naming PDF/HTML files


I have an EG (4.1) project where I have various charts and graphs, etc. When I turn them into HTML files/PDF files and then do a send to "email recipient as a step in project" my files get some random file names assigned to them. The PDF usually gets "result.pdf" while the HTML get something like "tmp2540.html".

I would like to define the names of these files myself. I email these files to a Microsoft Teamplace, and do not want to touch any of the output files as this becomes very tedious.

If you rename the task in EGuide and then run it, the RTF takes the name "RTF - " in the output. At least that's what I get in 4.1 with multiple files in one e-mail task. Renaming the e-mail task also makes the zip file have the e-mail task name, which also helps with filing an interpretation.
