Or more specifically, directly from the InfoCenter, the "VM/MVS
bridge profile". That user profile serves in part, for the
implementation of /bridging/ queued SNA traffic between the OS/400 [IBM

whereby the SMTP relies on some of the underlying support that was
already being provided by the SNA Distribution Services.
