I can think of at least three ways of doing this!

If you want a package, try Telex/Fax/400 by Omtool (www.omtool.com). As the 
name suggests, it lets you send faxes and telexes from your AS/400 
applications, but the latest releases also let you send e-mails. The only 
catch is that it dials and ISP. This may be ok for some companies/certain 
types of data, but not others.

If you want to go totally native, you can set up the box itself as a mail 
server (POP3 or Domino). You can find information on ow to get help 
configuring the POP3 server at http://www.as.ibm.com/asus/mus32ae.html. There 
must be a redbook as well, for the DIY enthusiasts.

If you already have an internal e-mail infrastructure, say Lotus Notes, but 
this is not hosted on an AS/400, you can form your messages within your 
application in a source file, then CPYTOSTMF and FTP to the mail server. 
Again, it will depend on the nature of the data and the nature of your 
controls. We have found this method to be acceptable only for internal 
messages until we can implement authentication and encryption.

Please let me know if I can be of further help.

Simone Joaquim
