Robert, there are some internet sites that offer access to an AS/400.  I
don't know anything about it, but I've seen this site mentioned  Maybe there are more sites like it.

I don't think there is a FAQ for this newsgroup.  There is a FAQ here for the http:/
mailing lists, but it doesn't really represent the truly most frequently
asked questions.  I don't think most of the questions would be relevant
to a beginner.

There's a free online book, maybe not really an e-book though: the ILE
RPG Programmer's Guide
(It's the IBM manual.)  It's not organized like a textbook, but it might
be useful.  Here's the Reference manual:

For books, try going here
and enter RPG in the search.  You can read reader-reviews for all the
RPG books listed there.

I'll buy one of these book and i'll signup at netshare400.
It will be the best for what i need.


1. E-Mail AS/400 address book problem - no address book shows up

I am sending mail just fine on my AS/400 9404-500 V3R7 but I can't get the
address book to show up.  Any thoughts?

I'm using Outlook with the Internet mail service installed as a client.  I also
tried the windows messaging client that comes with Win95 and Lotus Mail that
came with V3R7 but they all work the same.  Deliver mail fine, just no address
book.  I can send if I type the address like I entered it in the directory on
the AS/400.

Please help.  Want to get rid of my MSMail 3.5 servers and use the computers
for bigger and better things.
