Emailing PDF's

Hi,

I have a web site where users can order business cards. When they place the order, I output the PDF to a folder then send them an email with a link.

I want to avoid putting the PDF in the folder.

Is it possible that when they click on the link, an ASP.NET page or http handler can stream the PDF straight to them (like a download) straight from my firebird blob field?

I hope this is clear.

If you use SQL Reporting Services to generate the order, it can directly generate the PDF in the browser.

SQL Reporting services is not an option as I am not using Microsoft SQL unless it can be used with Firebird :-)
