RE: Sending Email



fixed

Rob,
Just about everything we send out has a form wrapped around it - We have at least 3 batch lobs that run off-shift that at any given point can have 400 - 500 pages (not all for the same customer). My biggest concern is the form software we use redirects everything to a specific output queue, from this outq is where the fax/email software does its thing. I did ask the vendor about compatibility (have not heard anything yet)

Where would be a good place to start to learn/understand SMTP, SNDEMAIL or even "rolling my own"

Please excuse my ignorance - this is all new to me

Thanks for any help you offer

Len Grieco

Well, using the freebie SNDEMAIL or rolling your own with the QTmmSendMail
API is a possibility. There seems to be a love it or hate it feeling with
the built in SMTP client of the OS.

There's the JavaMail api. It doesn't have the logging capability of the
native smtp client and I've heard that java based email solutions aren't
near as fast when it comes to higher volume.

I'll let the "buy me" people push their own products.

As far as how much it's integrated into your own applications...
What's your level of integration?
Are you saying there's a bazillion programs with SND... for your email in
there?
Or, are you saying there's a lot of customized overlays that differ based
on fax or email and printer file definitions with user defined text to
route the email and a lot of intensive stuff like that?

The bazillion programs is easy to fix. I've done that without modifying
the existing code. We were using SNDDST but switched over to SNDEMAIL.
There is an exit point that I put a program in. Whenever someone executes
SNDDST it analyzes the command and switches the parameters around and runs
SNDEMAIL instead, quite easily done.
Exit point: QIBM_QCA_CHG_COMMAND Format: CHGC0100

Greetings,

I have been asked to look for alternatives to our current email
software/solution we are using
Some quick background:
currently we are using a 3rd party software that faxes/emails our clients.
Spooled file(s) is/are created and wrapped with a form (also 3rd party
software) and is sent to an outq.
The email client does what it does (I am quit green when it comes to this)
and sends it off to our exchange server.
This has been in place for a very long time and is embedded heavily into
our system.
The maintenance cost is the driving factor as to why I was asked to search
for alternatives.

We are running v6r1 on a 520
I have started to looked at SMTP, LANSA Integrator, I'm even open to hear
about other software available.
Any thoughts/suggestions links would greatly be appreciated.



Thank you
