How to send a spool request as a PDF to an SAP inbox

I'm trying to send a spool request as a PDF document to an SAP inbox. I have managed to translate the report into a PDF format and write it to my hard drive using CONVERT_ABAPSPOOLJOB_2_PDF and WS_DOWNLOAD, but I want to send it as an attachment to an SAP inbox instead of downloading the file.

I found the function module SO_NEW_DOCUMETN_ATT-SEND_API1, but I'm not sure if this will work, or how to use it.

SO_NEW_DOCUMENT_ATT_SEND_API1 will work. You need to get the PDF into an internal table in memory -- which you can access from the OTF in the spool, using FM CONVERT_OTF.

SO_NEW_DOCUMENT_ATT_SEND_API1 is one of the FMs that has valuable online documentation to help you use it.
