I need to send an ZIP file email attachement. I know how to zip a file and how to email through JCL but is there any way such that I can use the Secure delivery feature of Outlook?

I'm sure the answer lies within Outlook.

Appreciate if You' d explain better the requirement

this is a mainframe related forum not a windoze one,
please explain what is the quoted feature

not everybody uses outlook, so You should not assume that everybody understands what You mean

looks more like a feature related to sending mails
no reason to expect any other mailing facility to have/support the same features as Outlook

Google is your friend. Look at RFC 2821 and RFC 2822, which are the standards for emails. If there is no mention of your desired feature in these documents, what you want to do almost certainly cannot be done from the mainframe directly.

The way to ensure security on email is to encrypt the message (using any of the various methods available), then email it as an attachment to a message.

Password protection of a zip file doesn't add much security -- as shown by Googling "zip password recovery" and finding there's 11 million hits. If the o/p requirement comes from PCI or something similar, zip passwords do not meet the requirement.

//SYSPROC  DD DSN=SYSUSER.TSO.COMMON.CLIST,DISP=SHR             
//STEPS    DD DSN=SS5482.G5482.STEPS4.DATA,DISP=SHR             
//SYSTSPRT DD SYSOUT=*                                         
//PA01FX   DD DSN=SS5482.G5482.PA01F.ZIP.DATA,DISP=SHR         
//ADDR     DD DSN=SS5482.G5482.S5482E20.ADDR.DATA,DISP=SHR     
//SYSTSIN  DD *                                                 
      %XMITIP * -                                               
       FROM (RAJIV_GARG@GMAIL.COM) -                           
       SUBJECT 'REPORT TEST' -                                 
       MSGDD STEPS           -                                 
       ADDRESSFILEDD ADDR    -                                 
       FILEDD  PA01FX        -                                 
       FORMAT   BIN/ZIP -                                       
       FILENAME ('FOSTER BENEFIT RESOURCES.ZIP')             - 
       ZIPPASS RAJIV                                           
/*                       

Where PA01FX is the zipped excel file.

Robert do we have different google's ?

"zip password recovery" gives me about 513.000 hits
zip password recovery gives me about 94.000.000 hits

Beside that all those tools offered do they really crack the
passwords? Im quite sceptic about that.

Hi Peter!
using double quotes will search for the <exact> "sentence"
without it will search for each word anywhere in the document

the count difference is normal

Was the following dataset created with a password?

SS5482.G5482.PA01F.ZIP.DATA

Beside that i dont know if ZIPPASS RAJIV has anything to do with
%XMITIP or the zip process.

And btw thanks for the password, going to use that when im listening in your transmission.

No. The dataset SS5482.G5482.PA01F.ZIP.DATA is a excel report in zip format. When we send this dataset using XMITIP, it the go as a zip file in which excel report is there.

ZIPPASS RAJIV

is a command where i want to apply password RAJIV to the zip file. But the file i am getting in email is getting opened without using any password

Hi Peter!
sorry for my bad judgement,
I got around 11,000,000 hits too

the difference about choosing only english pages rather than default to all languages is irrelevant

Once again, was that dataset created (zipped) with a password
protection? If not you have to do that.

I strongly recommend that sensitive matters like encryption should not rely on forum replies

they should be discussed with the proper organization hierarchy in order to apply the correct process

Why is that Enrico? A lot of stuff is to be found about en/decryption on the internets and/or literature.
Asking for some solutions/procedures etc. is not that bad.
Implementing some things is another story, that would be left to
authorized people. But maybe the TS belongs to that.
