14. Q:  How can I use my AS/400 to send mail?

A: 
  • The first thing you have to do, is to make sure that your AS/400 is configured to handle mail.
    • Have a check through our TCP/IP Configuration Guide Section 3: defining names and tables
    • - strmsf
      - strtcpsvr *smtp
      - strsbs qsnads
    • Make sure that your AS/400 is protected through appropriate spam filters
    • To verify the mail capabilities of your AS/400,
      1. sign on with a user profile existing in the system directory (WRKDIRE)
      2. enter the following command:
        SNDDST TYPE(*LMSG) TOINTNET(('my_email_address')) DSTD('Test message') LONGMSG('This is the body of the message that should be received.') PTY(*HIGH) SUBJECT('Testing my AS/400 mail capabilities')
      If your message is not received, send again the SNDDST message after replacing character @ with character in your email address (parameter TOINTNET).
  • Download and install our MIME & Mail Utility.
    This utility, instead of using SNDDST, takes full advantage of the powerful QtmSendMail API. The utility allows to create and send MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) messages imbedding / attaching any type of binary objects.
    It includes all sources and is free.
    It features a service program, that easiest the job of developing your ILE-RPG programs for sending automated mail to your customers.
