SNDDST Question

SNDDST
Sending small files are not a problem. When I try to send a file 899K it will say it was sent but if you look into your inbox nothing is there. When I CHGPOPA to 2048 the file will send 48k but when I CHGPOPA to no max then nothing in inbox again. Have started and stopped both STMP and POP. Have checked WRKDSTQ and QRYDST and nothing is waiting to be sent. Tested the exchange sever to see if it can take this size file and it can. Anyone got any ideas? Thanks

Hello,

I do not believe there is a file limitation. However, it could be that your message line is too long (256 characters) or it could be caused by your e-mail system limiting the size of e-mails going out. I would suggest that you try to e-mail the file directly from your e-mail program and see if it is stopped. If it is not, then check the length of the message that you are sending.

Additional comments from Search400.com member Eldon Dobring:
“We ran into a very simular problem. Our e-mail files sent via SNDDST were being truncated. IBM had us issue a command called CHGPOPA and change the Message split size to *NOMAX. This resolved our problem.”

Turning e-mail message splitting off may cause problems when sending
large e-mail to mail clients that cannot handle large messages.

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

SMTP is not a file-transfer protocol; it is designed and architected to send e-mail, not files.

If you need to send files, use FTP or other protocol that is intended to handle files.

E-mail servers are often enough clogged and overburdened by spam. Sending files in e-mail just makes the whole problem worse. Use an appropriate tool.
