    Emailing spooled files

    I have loaded this tool in less than half hour. When trying the e-mail functionality, on the receving end, I get: - C.DTF attachment, when I view: ATTACHMENT 1 : SOCPRC22.TXT ( application/octet-stream; encoding in base64 ) where socprc22.txt is the attachment name. I tried to launch/view/open and cannot access. Using V4R4 on the 400 and Notes 5.06 on the receiving end. Any hep would be appreciated.

    Peter, I pointed out a free, open-source solution in a prior post. Personally I lean towards Java solutions since I can easily integrate them into my servlets and still call them from RPG. I agree that paying nothing is best, but some people prefer the low maint of a canned solution. Of course the canned solutions usually have lots more features than the free stuff - it all depends on what you need/want. Alex Garrison

    Why pay anything at all? You can download a SNDEMAIL cmd from News/400, or write a similar wrapper for the IBM Qtmsendmail API yourself.

    For what it's worth I have used SPLTOOL in a previous job, and it works great. I would expect SPL2EMAIL to be solid as well. Both for $179? Well, SPLTOOL alone is worth that much (esp when you just want to print out page 1499 of that 1500 page report). Bradley: Does SPL2EMAIL run right off the as/400? If so, is it using SNDDST under the covers and hence requires some SNADS config? Does your install do all necessary config? Alex Garrison

    Try SPLTOOL. It can be downloaded at http://www.bvstools.com/spltool.html If $399 is considered cheap just for a PDF mailer, SPLTOOL and SPL2EMAIL at $179 that can email, FTP, etc... etc.. should be a steal. Brad

    The PDFingMailer program Bob refers to looks pretty good. It is only $399 ($599 for nt version apparently?). It actually runs on a Windows pc and connects to your as/400 to read spool files from an outq, converts to pdf, and sends out an email. Pretty slick and inexpensive. If you are looking for a free solution, you could use Joe Pluta's CPYSPLFPDF Java class to convert the spool file to pdf. With a small mod, you could then use my SndJMail utility to send the pdf as an email. Both Java utilities with source can be downloaded from the MC website. I think you could put together a simple Java pgm integrating the two classes in 1-2 days. The result would be a utility you can call from RPG or from your websphere servlets. Just a thought, Alex Garrison

    No we do not need any special hardware or software except what is on the AS/400. You do need a connection from your AS/400 to some type of email server that will send the email. Sorry about the multi post but I could not figure out how to attach multi documents to a message plus I forgot to answer your question. Roger

    Sounds like what we're looking for. Can you give me more info? Specifically, do you need to have Domino or some server software on your 400, and where can I find info on how to get RPG to write HTML? I'm pretty new to the web application stuff, so any information you can give me or point me towards would be welcome. Thanks loads, Keith Engle

    Keith, We use a product from Gumbo Software called Spool-a-Matic (great name!). It can convert spool files to html, pdf's and a number of other formats. We convert to pdf's and email as attachments. It also supports conversion from ipds/afpds so you can use the boxes, fonts, etc. Bill

    Keith Were running 4.3 and can do what I think you want. We have a rpg program that creats a html version of an invoice from the spool file. We then can send that via email to our customers. We also send via email reports that have been converted to rtf formats. This rpg program we got from the webb. They look Ok and our users like getting the reports directly to their pc's. Roger
