HI,

I am trying to prepare a JCL which can send SMS (Short Mail Service) to a mobile phone. I created a JCL for sending mail to mail id but I am not able to create a JCL for sending SMS.

Can anybody help me ?

Hello and welcome to the forum,

If your system has SMTP enabled then you can send an email to as an sms message. Suggest you check with your mobile/network support people and ensure that the mobile system can accept an e-mail sent via smtp.

Hi,

Thanks for your answer but you please share the JCL for that, I will ask my network operator about it.

Hello,

If you search in the forums, there are quite a few topics on sending e-mail from a mainframe.

I'd suggest you use the forum search and look for topics having smtp or xmitip or e-mail.

Here are a few that may have info you can use:
http://ibmmainframes.com/viewtopic.php?t=35743
http://ibmmainframes.com/viewtopic.php?t=35989
http://www.ibmmainframes.com/viewtopic.php?t=33008
There are additional links in some of the review topics.

Hi,

If I have to send a SMS from JCl to mobile without worrying about the SMTP compatibility, is there a way?

Thanks for your help.

/RANT ON
Once more let us clarify exactly what JCL is.

it is Job Control Language.

By itself it does nothing. It is used to invoke the chosen program and to define which datasets are to be used by the DD names associated with the chosen program.

JCL does not have magical powers that solve all problems, JCL is merely the vehicule for telling the processor which program you want it to execute.
/RANT OFF
So maybe if you would care to elaborate on exactly which program you wish to execute, then I'm sure some help will be found.

Messages sent from the mainframe use SMTP -- so you cannot avoid worrying about SMTP compatibility. You need to research whether or not an SMTP message can be sent to an SMS device.
