Adding Email Body via BPN ST tool

There are lot of request in Electrolux project for email flows where we need to deliver the output file as attachment in email and also send email body with some message to the trading partners.

Currently, we use ITX map and Attachment Macro to accomplish this.. But, if this option can be added in BPN itself, we can avoid creating ITX map for it.

What is your industry? Retail
How will this idea be used?

Today, we need to create ITX map to add the Email body content and use attachmentMacro for setup.

Ask is to remove dependency on the ITX map, so we can send the email body with 256 Character max. via BPN configuration itself and avoid creation of multiple ITX maps for each partner.

Considering ITX map takes more time for development, this will surely same effort for mapping as well as make the process faster for implemnetation.
