Please be aware this is an INSTANCE WIDE solution offering the user the ability to EITHER continue with the email remittance in the body of the e-mail OR as an attached pdf.

It is not possible to have both in one instance.

Login to the application.
Responsibility = Application Developer
Navigate : Application -> Messages


IBY_FD_SRA_EMAIL_BODY –  This is for configurable message body and this will
go as inline content for emails that have output attached as a pdf.

IBY_FD_SRA_ATTACHMENT – This value is by-default set to FALSE and should be
set to TRUE for using the new enhancement, if this is set to TRUE then the
output will be sent as PDF attachment, else the same behavior(inline content)
is retained.

Modify those messages to meet your requirement.
