Hi James,

Jusr recently I have been playing with the mail capabilities of the AS/400,
but haven't found anything really meaningful I want to do with them yet.

I got SMTP and POP up and running using the TCP manuals and the red books,
and then configured a Eudora client to log on and collect AS/400 mail. 

Once I had done that it was a short step to setting up Eudora Pro 4.1 to
get these emails and using filters based on a value in the mail header or
body, remail them to another email address.

Untidy, and convoluted, but it worked and was cheap and easy.

I don't know how robust this solution is, but it may enable you to get up
and running quickly and test the water. It strikes me that QSYSOPR messages
as email might just have a tad too much delay built in, especially for
critical type message.

What I didn't do was sent the messages using SNDDST to another IP address
but this is documented as a capability of SMTP. This might be more suited
to what you want to do.

If you want more details on what I did, feel free to ask.
