Rob,

Did you have to set up an originating mail user, or did they get rid of that requirement?

I ran this on my brand new 7.2 created from scratch lpar.
CHGSMTPA RTYMIN(99 3) RTYHOUR(5 1) PCTRTGCHR(*YES)
FWDHUBSVR('CLUSTER5.US.MESSAGELABS.COM')

Then I used the SNDMAIL api.

I quickly received it.

Thanks for the reminder Rich.

When I prompt CHGSMTPA I see:
E-mail directory type . . . . . *SMTP
F11
DIRTYPE *SMTP

As opposed to my often upgraded lpars, which are using *SDD.

Rob,

One thing I do know is that for current applications to work
correctly with the 7.2 SMTP server, the forwarding mailhub server must
be properly configured in the SMTP Attributes. I did not get this
from any BLOG, but from hard experience.

Quoting rob@xxxxxxxxx:

Has anyone found a wiki article or blog describing this 7.2 change in
smtp
behavior?

Has anyone played around with this?
What differences have you noticed?

I'm mainly interested in the sending of email from IBM i.
Please no replies like "I've abandoned email using the OS and now use
this

whizbang utility I wrote myself..."


What's new for V7R2

Read about new or significantly changed information for the E-mail topic
collection in V7R2.
Support the SMTP server running in three different modes, *SMTP *SMTPMSF
and *SDD

*SMTP is a new SMTP server mode introduced in IBM i 7.2, does not depend
on MSF and SNADS to deliver and store emails. It removes some SDD
related
function, uses IFS as the local directory to save mails, and uses CL
commands Add User SMTP (ADDUSRSMTP) and Work with All SMTP Users
(WRKSMTPUSR) to create and maintain mail users.

*SDD is the same as V7R1 SMTP, this mode is used when doing upgrade
installation.

*SMTPMSF is the same as *SMTP plus it supports the existing MSF exit
point

program.

Notice: DIRTYPE(*SMTP) is a newly designed mail system, it is the
default
mail system after scratch installation. You have to change back to
DIRTYPE(*SDD) manually if you want to use the same mail system as IBM i
V7R1.
Support to bind to specific interfaces for POP3 interoperability with
Lotus Domino.
The following SMTP features are supported under *SMTP and *SMTPMSF

Support RFC 2554 extensions except CRAM-MD5 and DIGEST-MD5.
Support RFC 2487 extension to enable SSL on port 25, 587 or 465.
Support mail SIZING RFC 1870 extension.
The new CL command Work with SMTP E-mail Messages (WRKSMTPEMM)
enables

tracking of all email currently being processed, and it eliminates the
need to use the MSF journal to track undeliverable mail problems.
The new CL command WRKUSRSMTP can be used to manage mail users and
removes mailbox contention when there are two mailbox names that begin
with the same 8 characters
