Other than SMTPSEND is there any other mail sending process which will allow this feature of IMPORTANCE FLAG?

I have a requirement to send automated email with the Importance flag highlighted in red in the mail sent because we want the recipients to read it WITHOUT fail. (Hoping that the recipient will give more priority when its flagged important)

Though its true that workarounds like adding 'IMPORTANT' or 'ATTENTION REQUIRED!' is there, I would like to know if there is any other way out.

Thanks.

Hello,

You could look into using XMITIP.

Here's the reference material:

Hi Dick,

Thanks for letting me know that there is another option by which we can mark the importance of the particular mail. But i have a doubt in using this XMITIP. In page no.29 of the PDF (from the link that you gave), it is given as, if we want to use it in the batch then we need to give the dataset referenced by the //SYSEXEC. Can you please tell me how to get that dataset? I just copied and pasted the important lines from the PDF below (bolded lines) and also the example batch JCL.

These examples illustrate some of the capabilities of the XMITIP application. The best way to learn about XMITIP is to use the ISPF Dialog to experiment. The dialog generates a report of the XMITIP command that it generated as well as providing a BATCH option which generates a data set that you can easily copy for use in a batch job or use in a TSO or ISPF application.
The data set referenced by the //SYSEXEC statement is the location where the XMITIP application has been installed.

Code:

//TSOB EXEC PGM=IKJEFT1B
//SYSEXEC DD DISP=SHR,DSN=rexx.exec
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSTSPRT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSTSIN DD *
%XMITIP (user1@domain.com user2@domain.com) nomsg file - 'hlq.data.set(member)' – from sender@domain.com -
subject 'send a file but no message'


Thanks
Agni.

To get the dataset referenced by the SYSEXEC DD try the following commands

1) start;6:tso listalc status

This would give the list of the datasets allocated to the DD and you can get the dataset referenced by SYSEXEC

2) Else Try ISRDDN from the commadn prompt.


I am not sure if you wanted these details. Hope i haven't misread your reqt.

Hello Agni,

A good next "thing to do" is talk with your system, network, or e-mail support people and ask if xmitip is already installed on your mainframe. If it is not, you may want to put in a request that it be installed for general use rather than for just this one requirement.

This is a pds that contains xmitip components. If it is installed, the dsn is completely up to your system support people. It is typically kept separate as some of the member names may be duplicated elsewhere on the system and this would cause problems. It is probably not part of the standard system SYSEXEC.

Thanks Aaru.

I will do that and let you know the results.

Dick, if the above idea is not getting it right, I will try to talk with my system people.

Thanks, Agni.
