Building an E-Mail System Interface
Some functions can be configured to send e-mail messages to designated users. For example, optional e-mail messaging is used in System Security, Product Change Control, Supplier Performance, and the Global Requisition System.
To take advantage of this feature, the e-mail system must be defined and addresses specified. The e-mail interface is built around an operating-system command that communicates with the user’s e-mail system. This command tells the e-mail system how to construct and address messages.
Set up a command line in E-Mail Definition Maintenance (36.4.20) for each system you want to access. Then, in User Maintenance (36.3.1), specify an e-mail definition and address for each user.
Be sure that an output device is defined in Printer Setup Maintenance (36.13.2) that has Destination Type set to Email. This is described in Setting Up Printers
. When you select the associated device in the Output field in programs throughout the system, the resulting report is sent to specified e-mail addresses.
