    I would recommend using IBM's new native command SNDSMTPEMM.

      Hi Xcures:

      1. do not use snddst.
      2. If you really want to use snddst ..... refer to step 1.

      When you use snddst:
      1. The subject of the email is always questionable. Refer to the bottom of this:
      2. You can only send 1 attached file.
      3. The snddst system uses an old...old...old folder system based on dos....that means you can not send an attachment who's name is gt 6 (8?) chars + a 3 char extention.
      4. The list goes on and on.....

      If you want to send an email with some good features.....
      Look at Mmail / sndmail /
      if you are an iprodeveloper look at Scott Klement's stuff here:

        First thing to understand is that SNDDST isn't intended for "e-mail" in the first place. It's intended to send (SND) distributions (DST) over a SNA network. It was enhanced way back when TCP/IP became native in the AS/400 series in order to provide a basic bridge into SMTP e-mail.

        It can be useful for system messages and even for slightly more complex uses, but it should not be confused with any actual "e-mail" solution. Unless you have fairly advanced experience with both SNA/DS and SMTP, you should use an e-mail facility that is designed for SMTP.

        There are only two hard things in Computer Science: cache invalidation, naming things and off-by-one errors.
