Email an attachment

Postby Srini Srini » Sat Jun 18, 2011 1:13 pm

Hello,

I am trying to email an attachment from mainframe using IEBGENER. My JCL is:
//MAILPROC EXEC PGM=IEBGENER
//SYSABEND DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSTOTAL DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSLIST DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSUT2 DD SYSOUT=(A,SMTP)
//SYSIN DD DUMMY
//*
//SYSUT1 DD DSN=USERID.INPUT.CARDS,DISP=SHR
// DD DSN=USERID.DCOL.DATASETS,DISP=SHR

Content of USERID.INPUT.CARDS is as below:

HELO MAILST1
MAIL FROM: <NAME@COMPANY.COM>
RCPT TO: <NAME@COMPANY.COM>
DATA
FROM: <NAME@COMPANY.COM>
TO: <NAME@COMPANY.COM>
SUBJECT: TEST ATTACHMENT
MIME-VERSION: 1.0
CONTENT-DISPOSITION:ATTACHMENT;FILENAME="TEXT_FILE.TXT"
CONTENT-TYPE: TEXT/PLAIN

This JCL is working well, but if I put some text in the body of the USERID.INPUT.CARDS, I don't get the attachment, instead I get the attachment text in the body of the email.

Any help on getting this work, please?

Thanks,
Srini

Have you found anything in the forum to help you? There are many posts re e-mailing attachments - you should find your answer there.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

What you are seeing is how this form of email attachment works. If there is any text added to the body, the attachment is not going to be attached but rather it will be included in the body of the email. That is the way it works.

The commands below have been used to send an email with text in the body and an attachment:
HELO MAINFRAME
MAIL FROM: <MAINFRAME@xxx.COM>
RCPT TO: <aaa@xxx.COM>
DATA
SUBJECT: PMV ONCALL PRODUCTION LOG - 07/23/2010
MIME-VERSION: 1.0
CONTENT-TYPE: MULTIPART/MIXED; BOUNDARY="SIMPLE BOUNDARY"

--SIMPLE BOUNDARY
CONTENT-TYPE: TEXT/PLAIN
CONTENT-DISPOSITION: INLINE

NOTICE
</BIG></FONT><BR><FONT SIZE=2 FACE=CALIBRI COLOR=RED><I>
THIS E-MAIL (INCLUDING ATTACHMENTS) IS CONFIDENTIAL AND LEGALLY
PRIVILEGED AND IS INTENDED SOLELY FOR THE ADDRESSEE.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP
</I></FONT></CENTER><BR><FONT SIZE=3 FACE=CALIBRI>
THIS IS AN AUTOMATED MESSAGE GENERATED FROM THE MVS JOB XXXXXX
AT ZZZZZZ TO NOTIFY THE USER ABOUT THE DETAILS OF THE PRODUCTION LOG
FOR DIFFERENT JOBS THAT HAVE EXECUTED OVER THE DAY.
<BR><BR>

--SIMPLE BOUNDARY
CONTENT-TYPE: TEXT/PLAIN
CONTENT-DISPOSITION: ATTACHMENT; FILENAME=PROD_LOG.CSV

//         DD   DISP=SHR,DSN=<file to be attached>
//         DD   DISP=SHR,DSN=<trailing period file>
Note that SMTP MIME is extremely sensitive to the precise format of the data, and even omitting on the the blank lines may cause the email to not be sent or the attachment to not be included.

Did you bother doing a search on the other forum you posted the same thing in? If so, you would have found any number of posts that have JCL that generate email attachments, and several discussions about the requirements of SMTP to genrate attachments.

Your search ability needs to be improved, then. I easily and rapidly found on the other forum http://ibmmainframes.com/about55814.html which has a JCL sample that I used to generate an email with attachment and body. You can modify it to meet your needs.
