attach multiple files (10) in one e-mail

Postby sdc872 » Wed May 05, 2010 11:02 pm

Hello,

I need to attach multiple files (10) in one e-mail via JCL. Is that possible? I started with trying to attach 2 files. I figured if I could figure out how to attach 2, I can do 10. Here is what I tried so far:

//SENDNOTE EXEC PGM=IEBGENER
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSUT2 DD SYSOUT=(B,SMTP)
//SYSIN DD DUMMY
//SYSUT1 DD *,LRECL=132
//SYSUT1 DD *,LRECL=132
HELO SYSA
MAIL FROM:sdc@xyz.com
RCPT TO:sdc@xyz.com
DATA
FROM:sdc@xyz.com
TO:sdc@xyz.com
SUBJECT: TEST REPORT APRIL 2010
MIME-VERSION: 1.0
CONTENT-TYPE: MULIPART/MIXED; CHARSET=US-ASCII
CONTENT-DISPOSITION: ATTACHMENT; FILENAME=TEST.REPORT.APRIL.DOC
CONTENT-DISPOSITION: ATTACHMENT; FILENAME=TEST.REPORT2.APRIL.DOC

// DD DISP=SHR,DSN=TEST.REPORT.M0410
// DD DISP=SHR,DSN=TEST.REPORT2.M0410

Please help! Thanking you in advance.....

Yes, using MIME allows for multiple attachments. This is input into an IEBGENER that copies it to our SMTP output and it delivers multiple attachments:
//SYSUT1   DD   *
HELO MAINFRAME.xxxxxxxx.COM
MAIL FROM: <MAINFRAME@xxxxxxxx.COM>
RCPT TO: <RSAMPLE@xxxxxxxx.COM>
DATA
FROM:     MAINFRAME@xxxxxxxx.COM
TO:       ROBERT.SAMPLE@xxxxxxxx.COM
SUBJECT:  TEST ATTACHMENT
MIME-VERSION: 1.0
CONTENT-TYPE: MULTIPART/MIXED; BOUNDARY="SIMPLE BOUNDARY"
--SIMPLE BOUNDARY
CONTENT-TYPE: TEXT/PLAIN
CONTENT-DISPOSITION: ATTACHMENT; FILENAME=EMAILATT.TXT

//         DD   DISP=SHR,DSN=TTSSRS0.JCL.CNTL(EMAILATT)
//         DD   *
--SIMPLE BOUNDARY
CONTENT-TYPE: TEXT/PLAIN
CONTENT-DISPOSITION: ATTACHMENT; FILENAME=EMAILTST.TXT

//         DD   DISP=SHR,DSN=TTSSRS0.JCL.CNTL(EMAILTST)
//         DD   *
--SIMPLE BOUNDARY--
//         DD   DISP=SHR,DSN=TTSSRS0.JCL.CNTL(EMAILAT)
//
but note that the boundaries are mandatory as specified here -- you cannot skip one and expect multiple attachments to work.

It's not working for me. What's this line of code:

// DD DISP=SHR,DSN=TTSSRS0.JCL.CNTL(EMAILAT)

I'm not sure what I'm supposed to put here.

That is the member containing one line with a period in column 1. This is required by the SMTP RFC standard and is not optional.

I created a file EMAILAT with a "." in Column 1 and added that to the last line in my code. Now I'm getting this error message:

WER171A CONCAT DS, LRECLS NE OR RECFMS DIFF

EXPLANATION: One of the files concatenated to a fixed-length input
data set has an LRECL not equal to the original LRECL; or one of the
files concatenated to a variable-length data set has an LRECL
greater than the original LRECL; or one of the files concatenated to
a fixed or variable-length data set has a RECFM not equal to the
original RECFM.

I looked it up and got the above description. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Both of my files have an LRECL of 132.

Your easiest solution is to create a PDS of LRECL 132, create a member in it for each DD * in my JCL, and concatenate the various members instead of using DD *. Inline data is usually LRECL 80 which would not match your files.

Okay I'll try this. Sorry, this is all new to me, thank you for your patience. I can get it to attach one word document, so I didn't think it would be this hard to attach more than one. Thanks again!
