Email from iSeries

Email correspondence at our company is currently being completed using the SNDDST w/ *LMSG option to send to outside recipients. We have been asked to have a logo added to the email. It is my understanding that the *LMSG is for text only and cannot be used for this. The logo is to be a URL directive and not imbedded in the email. How would you recommend that we accomplish this task? (keeping in mind that the body of the email is the result of an application process running on our iSeries.) Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

with mime mail you can send an HTML page as mail.
Not simple, but possible.
Search for MMAIL here.

===========================================================

If anything but text is involved, you’re going to have to convert to “real” e-mail and leave SNDDST behind. That is a stop-gap measure anyway and should have been discarded years ago.

Install a utility such as MMAIL or create your own. If you do it yourself, you might use the QtmmSendMail API to associate MIME attachments with an e-mail message. You’ll need to know how to create a MIME attachment and how to structure an e-mail body properly.

The decision to build, buy or install a downloaded utility is up to you.

    We too use MMAIL. We got all our information on it direct from IBM: http://www-922.ibm.com/mmail/start

    I have used MMAIL, but ditched it in favor of RPGmail, which IMO is a lot better, and free. You can read about it at http://mowyourlawn.com/ (I am NOT associated with Aaron or the product) Regards, Sloopy

    If there are a few bucks in your budget, check out Gumbo or MailTool from BVS Tools.  Both are reasonably priced and work well.  We have used them for over 10 years.
