Thanks for that, Peter. I entered the command:
which supposedly ended the IBM i Mail Server Framework, which had no effect on dtw_sendmail(), so I gather that you're right about MSF not being used. I've also used the INI file to relay mail through an external SMTP server offered by our ISP.
But in my current configuration we're just specifying the internal IP address of our IBM i server, which supposedly uses the IBM i smtp server to forward messages. I had to enable IBM i SMTP relay for that. Hence, I was expecting something to show up in TRCTCPAPP spool files.

DTW_SENDMAIL is just a 1 line function in a script. It uses an IBM *SRVPGM which sends directly to the mail server whose domain is specified in the INI file.
Doesn't use MSF since ending MSF has no effect on delivery.
