SMTP on z/OS

We are being told at our shop IBM will be discontinuing support for SNMP which we use for sending emails from our jobs.

What protocols are you using for sending emails from z/OS?

thanks

Bill

(in response to william giannelli)
Not to be a nitpicker, but I think you’re meaning SMTP. SNMP is “Simple Network Management Protocol”. SMTP is “Simple Mail Transport Protocol.” (We use SMTP for our mainframe-generated mail. I hadn’t heard this – we’ll need to have our z/OS sysprog look into it for our code.)

(in response to Philip Sevetson)
You can still to SMTP from z/OS just need to use CSSMTP instead of older way. This was a change made in z/OS V2.3. We upgraded to V2.3 then had to implement the CSSMTP. Working great.

If you use the z/OS UNIX sendmail command, SMTPD, or the sendmail client to send mail, a
compatible subset of sendmail function is provided by the new z/OS sendmail to CSSMTP bridge
(sendmail bridge) and CSSMTP

might you know if CSSMTP comes with z/OS or is it an extra cost item?

thanks

It comes with it. Just needs to be configured.

SNMP on z/OS
(in response to Lizette Koehler)
One thing I forgot to mention, and I am not sure if the thread had this in the discussion.



We use XMITIP which is freeware. More flexible than SMTP (it can send text, PDF, XLS and more)



Here is a link if you are interested.



www.lbdsoftware.com http://www.lbdsoftware.com



Look for XMITIP on this site
