Sending Email by SNDDST to Remote Host

When I use 'SNDDST' command to send the email (with a PDF file as attachment) to any local host, it works successfully, but when I try the same command to send the email to a remote host (yahoo), I get the reply email message 'Not able to deliver the message... Retries exhausted while attempting to connect to remote host yahoo....'. Do I need to give any more parameter for SNDDST or I need to do some setup? Folloing is command I am using SNDDST TYPE(*LMSG) TOINTNET((xxxxx@yahoo.com)) + DSTD('PO by Email') + MSG('SEND: A PO by Email ') + DOC(TSTPOPDF.PDF) FLR('RBTREP01')

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

Some email servers block email if they can’t verify the sender’s email address. By default the email address created by SNDDST would not be an address that could be verified. You could use the SMTP alias feature to translate the address to a verifiable email address. I ran into this situation several years ago when trying to send automatic email to travelocity.com and I solved it by using the alias feature.

    Havn't used SNDDST myself, but problem seems similar to some I have come across in the past using other sendmail functions. I suspect problem is the system you are trying to send from does not have any access to external mail servers, probably blocked by firewall. Can get around problem two ways, either open up firewall for SMTP from your system, or if this is not acceptable route mail through some other internal mail server, this will need setup both on sending machine to route all mail through another server, and on the other mail server to allow forwarding from your sending system.
