Simply Sending Emails from AP

  • 1.  Simply Sending Emails from AP

    Posted 12-11-2019 11:08 AM
    All,

    I am in the process of setting up an Automation Point Server.  We are not installing the SQL piece of Notification Manager, but would still like to be able to send emails.  Does anyone know if there is a white paper or other documentation that specifically describes the process of setting this up?

    Has anyone been through a similar process to what I am describing?

    Any help with this matter is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
     Steve

    In OORexx on Win 2008 R2 I just:

    objEmail =.oleobject~new("CDO.Message")
    objEmail~Subject='your subject'
    objEmail~From='from address'
    objEmail~To='to address'
    objEmail~HTMLBody=<an HTML body> ...or... objEmail~TextBody=<plain text body>
    objEmail~Send

    Assumes you have SMTP configured to point to a mail hub DNS for your network. There are fields in the CDO.Message object you can update with DNS/port if you don't. Works for me.

    Good morning Steve,
    Besides the below email information there is another option to use...

    See the ADDRESS VOX SENDMAIL function in CA Automation Point. It uses also the SMTP protocol.
    Here the link to the manual :
