EMAIL - B2B Channel for Low Transmission Volumes

Native E-mail Communication on IBM i

E-mail communication has been a basic application in business life for many years now. E-mail is not only used for communication but also information storage and the documentation of business workflow.

E-mail is an especially important mode of external data exchange for B2B from SMU, for example for online purchasing or selling. E-Mail requests, e-mail newsletters, and electronic advertisements have become standard procedures.

i-effect® *EMAIL is a native IBM i application for sending and receiving emails on IBM Power Systems. i-effect® sends and receives all IBM i objects, such as spooled files, ZIP archives, IFS, and DB/2 files, as well as the dispatch of MIME attachments to a user-defined number of (copy) recipients. In combination with i-effect® *SPOOL, you can convert spool fi les into PDF and all common PC and graphic formats, and then you can e-mail them to external business partners or internal to single departments with any SMTP mail server.

Even more communication modules: AS2 AS4 FTP HTTP OFTP OFTP2 SOA
