Send message to specific user when AS/400 job runs

Tags:

SNDMSG
I need to send a message to a specific user informing them when a specific job runs. The user is not getting the message. I have checked the user profile to make sure of the correct message queue. I have sent the message to my own user id and it works fine. I am thinking there is something with either the user id itself or the message queue attributes, but everything looks OK to me. Does anyone have any ideas about what else I might need to check.


Software/Hardware used:
AS400 sndmsg command

    How are you sending the message, SNDMSG or SNDBRKMSG?

    Does your user have their message queue in *BREAK mode?

    There are some parameters on the *USRPRF that can set the message queue to *BREAK when they sign on.

    Assuming you are trying to send message to user not program message. It is recommended that the message length/ characters should be up to 512 characters. Check the characters when you sent. For more information, please link here: https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/ssw_ibm_i_61/cl/sndusrmsg.htm

    And for program message, https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/ssw_ibm_i_61/cl/sndpgmmsg.htm

    What do you mean by "runs"? Is that when the job leaves the *JOBQ and starts execution? Is it when it's initially submitted? Or is it when it completes?

    The different circumstances would lead to different answers.
