Yes you can, check out the STRWCH command. (Assuming you are running V5R4 or greater). You don't want a lot of watches because it will impact system performance but a few can help greatly. I use one to facilitate restarting my remote journals after network errors but watching the QHST log for CPF70D5 messages.

Can't be done.

Either the job stops, or the job doesn't stop (and sends an email).

You'd need an external process that monitors for the MSGW and sends an email.

We use Bytware's Messenger Plus for that here.

We want to send an email if our nightly closing/backup stops on any
kind of error. I thought about monitoring for CPF0000 but I think
that will prevent the job from stopping with a MSGW. I still want the
job to stop with MSGW on the line where the error occurred, I just
need some facility to notice that a MSGW condition exists and send an email. Any suggestions?

if you want to understand why that is, there are many good books on
the design of operating systems. please pass them along to redmond
when you're done reading them :)
