It is possible to use a normal SMTP adress say

but you need as your local domain (cfgtcp opt 12)
and system as your local host name.

also put this complete name in yout hosts table  (cfgtcp opt 10)

you can connect 4 (four) names to 1 (one) internet adress.

use WRKNAMSMTP to connect a SMTP-name to your AS/400 userid.

so if your  your userid is EDUARD and your SMTP-name is you have several options of adressing.


After I changed the USRIDDELIM character in the SMTP attributes to a . (dot)
the first method  changed to

I hope this is enough info
