Requirements to send an email:
1. Your site must be running an SMTP started task.
2. You must add a DD statement of SYSOUT=(?,????????) where the ? is the output class for SMTP (often B but it is site dependent) and the ???????? is the SMTP started task name.
3. You must create a properly formatted email (see RFC 2821 and 2822 for details).
4. Your COBOL program must write each line of the properly formatted email to the DD name and SMTP handles the rest, once the end of message is found (a single period on a line by itself).

There have also been many, many discussions on this forum about sending emails and the various issues -- do a search.
