I am looking for some utility by which I can copy the message from my Mailbox to the dataset in Mainframe.

I know that we can send message from dataset in Mainframe system to the mailbox but I want the reverse of this process.

Please let me know if we can do this.

Me too, although I have yet to come across anything workable, including the use of TCP/IP sockets to read the mail as if were on an SMTP server.

Two products I know of are Mail2Zos and a special feature for Connect:Direct from Sterling Commerce and, I think, a special feature for Gentran as well.

Hi,

In my previous shop we had mainframe email application called "HOST" email. It is the same as Outlook email, except it does not support attachments & It can be accessed via batch.

So direct the outlook email to mainframe HOST account and then access it via batch.(I know Senthil has it at his mainframe icon_biggrin.gif , he "was" my colleague)

HOST offers very little email filtering options, so setting up a separate HOST account would reduce the pain in finding the required email from a common mailbox that has myriad of emails.

Hope this helps icon_smile.gif
