Issue/Introduction

We replaced the SMTP email relay with the CSSMTP email relay.  I've notice no email notifications have been going out this week, and while looking at the z/OS spool I see multiple spool files with the writer value of SMTP.  Hum...  I think I found my issue since the writer value should now be CSSMTP. 

I'm trying to figure out where in OPS/MVS to change the email relay server name.

 

Cause

z/OS V2R2 was the last release that supported the SMTPD NJE: Mail Gateway and sendmail mail transports.   Customers instructed by IBM to replace SMTPD with CCSMTP.   

Environment

Release : 13.0

Component : OPS/MVS

Resolution

First, find the REXX that needs to change in the Broadcom distributed member:   yourhlq.**.CCLXSAMP(EMAILTXT).

The code itself to look for is...

/* Allocate the SMTP output file
/*--+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5----+----6-
address OPSDYNAM "ALLOC FILE(PUNCH1) SYSOUT(B) WRITER(SMTP)"

Since the changes concern customer coded REXX, the REXX libraries need to be searched, via the ISPF search 3.14, for "WRITER(SMTP)" and changed accordingly to reflect CCSMTP instead of SMTP.
