IGNITe/400 Mailing List Archive Entry

Try the SNDDST command using the *LMSG parameter. It allows you to send to
up to 300 recipients at once and if you specify *BCC as the type then no
one should see the list of addresses to which you send the message. It
does take a little setup to use the *LMSG parameter, but you only need to
do it once and you can send to any Internet email address.. I think it's
been discussed here in the past, but let me know if you need more info on
the configuration and I'll dig it up.

Hope that helps,
Rod Davis

AS/400 E-mail

Our user group finally got off its collective butt and agreed to use my
web-based User Group Membership Manager (UGMM) application. So now I
have to start filling functional gaps. One of them is the ability to
notify members of upcoming meetings via e-mail.

The AS/400 on which this UGMM software (mostly Net.Data) runs is not yet
configured for e-mail. What I want is to be able to send e-mail to each
member who has opted for this notification method. I don't necessarily
want to receive e-mail on this machine but it's okay if I have to. I
would prefer to send e-mail in one shot rather than one-piece-at-a-time.
I don't want any e-mail address to appear other than the intended
recipient's address. And I want to build this function myself with
built-in OS/400 features rather than buying 3rd party software.

I'm pretty sure all this is possible and I know the IGNITe400 members
have done some pretty cool things with AS/400 e-mail. Any sugestions on
the approach I should use?
Is there anything unrealistic about what I want to do here?

Thanks mucho.

What AS/400 IP services do you run?
