View Full Version : Configuring SMTP for sending e-mail
01-01-1995, 02:00 AM
Hello folks, what are the steps to follow in order to have SMTP configured on the AS/400 and use SNDDST cmd ? I would like to investigate both the possibilities of having an external server that acts as a SMTP server and the AS/400 itself that is a SMTP server. Any help is appreciated. Regards, Simone

Here is a list of instructions I've accumulated from this site and others (As Always, use at own risk): <H3> SMTP configuration</H3> <pre> The following assumes that TCP has been previously configured. 1. Type CFGTCP, and select option 10. Create an entry with INTNETADR('999.99.999.999') HOSTNAME('server-name') TEXT('Mail server') 2. Select option 12 from CFGTCP menu (DNS Server address). Enter HOSTNAME('current system') DMNNAME('xx.com') HOSTSCHPTY(*REMOTE) INTNETADR('918.104.22.1689') 3. CHGSMTPA AUTOSTART(*YES) MAILROUTER('server-name') 4.

David, I do not understand something. We have 2 scenarios: 1) it is working properly; it uses an internal remote SMTP server, we have defined everything you said plus a TCP/IP route 2) an other AS/400 which is not in the local LAN, does not have on its local LAN a SMTP server. We would like to send e-mails from the AS/400 to the Lotus notes Clients inside that network. What are we missing ? The procedure seems not to work. Could you please give us a help ? Thanks, Simone

Unfortunately, I have no Lotus notes experience. Maybe someone can pick it up from here.
