Hi Amby - 

The built-in SMTP delivery protocol doesn't support attachments.  But
you do have a couple of options: 

1) you can build a custom delivery protocol that uses SMTP to send
notifications with attachments. I don't have Shyam Pather's SQLNS book
in front of me at the moment, but I think he goes through a similar
example in it. It's for v2.0, not 2005, but the same concepts should

2) I've also sent notifications via SMTP that have a link to a
resource that they need rather than including it as an attachment. For
example, rather than attaching a PDF, I place the PDF on a web site
and then send a link to the PDF in the notification. This has worked
well for me.
