I have dealt with the same requirement, correspondence from an AS/400 via
email at a couple of our clients.

  We added a pop-up window after the transaction was entered where the user
could enter the email address of the recipient and then press some key to
email it.

  To make it easier to use, we created a table of customer numbers/email
addresses, gave the user the capability to email to a number of addresses,
customized the text for the SUBJECT line and reformatted the AS/400 output
so that it is legible as an email document.

  The AS/400 to email connection needed to be configured, with there being a
couple of different ways of doing so.  IBM's Red Books were helpful.

  These projects were done for JDEdwards and order entry acknowledgements,
however the similarity to BPCS and POs is obvious.

Subject: Automating Purchasing process

BPCS 6.1.01 AS400 Mixmod

I realize this is a vague question before I ask it but here goes.
My purchasing mgr is wanting to automate the generation of PO's within our
system to where once they are entered into the system, we could email them
to our correct buyers for verification, and then route them via email to
the correct vendors.  Is anyone using a 3rd party software that automates
the purchasing process in any manner.   I'm not sure we're ready for a full
blown Supply Chain Mgt package at this time.
