How to send a mail in JCL having follow up (FLAG) option ?

Postby pradvik1989 » Tue Jan 03, 2012 10:21 am

Currently I am sending mail using the SMTP step and now while mailing the report, I need to FLAG the e-mail and send it. IS there any option for flagging in SMTP ? Or is there any other Utility to perform this.?

Thanks in Advance,
Pradeep

What are you trying to do by "flagging" it? Where did you get the idea of FLAG from?

Hi Billiboyo,

Mail is sent indicating the failure of Jobs. So if it is "flagged", it will add to our calendar. Adding it to the calendar will literally say that we need to look into this issue soon.

I got this as my requirement.

The flag option will be part of your email client. It may -- or may not -- be possible to flag an email from an SMTP job. Only by looking into the documentation for your email client can you know for sure.

The e-mail client which I use is MS outlook 2010. It supports the iCalendar files. so when i tried sending an e-mail via SMTP job, the mail is not flagged in outlook.
I used the "FOLLOWUP" keyword in my SMTP job.
so is it possible to flag an email (to outlook) from an SMTP job?`

You have to read the post made by Robert above your last. You have to look at Outlook, and see what it does to establish flagging or use of the calendar. Once you know if it is possible and, if so, what is necessary to put in the e-mail, then you can see if you can do it from the mainframe. Look at the Outlook documentation. Search the web. Look for Microsoft Outlook fora where you can post the question. etc.

No, and there will not be. We have provided you a complete and responsive answer. Whether or not you undertake YOUR part of the response (that is, DO THE RESEARCH IN OUTLOOK) is not our concern. We have told you that flagging is a part of the email client and hence if it is possible, you will have to find out how through your email client. z/OS will NOT be involved in the flagging, except possibly by sending some character.
