I am an AS400 programmer that would like to send emails to our customers
automatically. We are a manufacturing company with the AS400 running
most of our legacy systems. We track orders via the AS400. We have our
customers' email address on his customer record in the AS400. Every
night I would like to build a file of all the shipments and let the
customer know that his Purchase Order # xxx for Product xyz was shipped
via UPS. I will even be able to build in the URL so that the customer
can track his package(s), not unlike what amazon.com does.
We have a NT Server running Microsoft Exchange and the AS400 can run
SMTP mail. Does anybody know of an easy way to send the email from the
AS400 or should I build a file and pass it to Microsoft Exchange? If
anybody is doing this sort of thing, I would appreciate an email.
Any help would be appreciated.
