Hi,

Using below code, I can send some message to a Maninframe user

Code:
//HLQS JOB (@),'SEND MSG',             
//          MSGCLASS=R,CLASS=0,       
//         NOTIFY=HLQ                 
//*                                   
//STEP010 EXEC PGM=IKJEFT01           
//SYSTSPRT DD SYSOUT=*                 
//SYSTSIN DD *                         
  SEND 'I AM DON..!!' USER(HLQ) LOGON 
//*                                   


But the message which 'pops-up' on the USER screen would be like
Code:
I AM DON..!! HLQ
Is there any way I can remove HLQ from this message?

I would say not,
"send" appends to the message text the "originator" of the message
could be a userid or a "CN(...)" console identifier

Hello,

What business reason is there to eliminate the originator id?

You could always send an e-mail from some non-existent account (in the batch job) instead of a tso message. . . Of course the recipient's filtering might just discard the message as spam.

Hi Dick,

This is for learning, no business reason behind.

This messages would pop-up on Mainframes screen, unless I mis-understood, do we have spam checker on mainframes as well?

I believe the learning came from Enrico.

Mainframe e-mail systems (if anyone is still using one that talks to the outside world) could have a spam checker.

The originator id is not spam. TSO SEND is not part of the "mail" system.

Hi dick,

Well, I was thinking to play a prank with my collegue by sending him a 'pop-up' message, as if it was from system side..ummmm...seems can't do... icon_sad.gif .

I'm not trying to send 'mail' but a TSO MSG only.

Anuj,

Did you try using the "TSO SEND" command?

You can do that. I dont remember the exact command and i guess that to be the TSO SEND command.

Funny you should mention that....
Many years ago, a friend and I (I was watching, he was doing) copied the send executable into his PDS and hard coded the sender to always show ops as the sender.....I used it one too many times and got a reprimand in my HR file.....
Dis-assembling a load mod and editing it in a PDS shouldn't be (wasn't) that hard, give it a try.......

JCL posted in my first post is "TSO SEND" in batch or are you referring to something different; if yes, please suggest.

Perhaps I didn't get the direction yet, where to get the 'executable' of JCL.. icon_confused.gif .., I think even the question of mine is not appropriate, ah..yes I didn't get the 'message' of your suggestion, please suggest once again.
