• Subject: SNDDST mod to allow long messages & sending to *INTNETADR
  • From: Neil Palmer <npalmer@xxxxxxxxxxx>
  • Date: Mon, 19 Jan 1998 21:30:13 -0600

I thought this would be relevant in light of recent postings about
sending e-mail from programs.

PTF's have been released for SNDDST that allows you to send a long
message (up to 5000 characters), including to an internet mail address,
and allows use of the Subject/Reference, Due Date/Author etc. fields.

Check out the following PTF's:
V4R1M0  SF45226 
V3R7M0  SF45415
V3R2M0  SF45328

  THIS APAR WAS SYSROUTED TO R320 SA69741.
  The SNDDST command should support sending a message longer than
  the current limit on the MSG parameter, which is 256.  TOINTNET
  should also be supported with the longer message.
 
 
  LOCAL FIX:
 
 
  PROBLEM SUMMARY:
  The SNDDST command should support sending a message longer than
  the current limit on the MSG parameter, which is 256.
 
 
  PROBLEM CONCLUSION:
  A new TYPE (TYPE(*LMSG)) and a new parameter (LONGMSG) are added
  to the SNDDST command to support longer messages.
 
  TYPE(*LMSG)
 
      The text specified on the Long Message prompt (LONGMSG
      parameter) is sent as an final-form text document (FFTDCA)
      note.  LONGMSG allows up to 5000 characters, which is
      about one page of text.  The "details" parameters
      (Subject, Reference, Author, Due Date, etc.)  are
      supported with TYPE(*LMSG).
 
  LONGMSG(*NONE/'long-message-text')
 
  Specify the text to send to the recipients as an final-form text
  document (FFTDCA).
 
  The possible values are:  *NONE
      No text is sent.  This is the default and required when
      TYPE is not *LMSG
 
  long-message-text
      Specify the text (5000 characters maximum) to send to the
      recipients.  The text will be put into an final-form text
      document (FFTDCA) that will be sent as a note.
 
      The text must be formatted by using the following controls
      within the text.
 
       o  :/N - Will cause a new line (Carrier return).
 
       o  :/P - Will cause a new paragraph.
                New line plus a blank line.
                (Carrier return and Required carrier return)
 
      The document is setup with 10 characters to the inch, the
      font ID is 11, the left margin at position 1, and the right
      margin at position 75.  If :/N is not used to start a new
      line, the text will continue past the right margin and will
      not be viewable by some E-mail clients.  Blanks are not
      removed from the text, but left in place for indentation
      and alignment.  No extra text (ie. Recipient List,
      Date/Time, Subject, or Sender) is put into the document.
 
      Technical note to programmers:  Any of the FFTDCA controls
      (in hexadecimal) can be inserted in the text to provide
      more control of the format if the controls above are not
      enough.
 
      The character ID of the text in LONGMSG can be specified
      on CMDCHRID parameter.
