Hi D.J.Suresh,

Maybe it's just the way you are filling the command. You didn't have any error sending your message ? Your setup is all ok (you are able to send e-mail usually) ? Here's an example of what I use and is working fine.

SNDDST TYPE(*LMSG) TOINTNET(('9999999999@abcindustries.com')) DSTD('Test') LONGMSG('This is a test...') PTY(*HIGH)

Give us a bit more info about the failure please.

VP Technology / Senior Consultant
Please post a copy of the SNDDST command (you can blank out the phone number), and the exact error message that you are receiving.  If you are getting a non-delivery report kicked back to you via email, include a copy of the NDR message and NDR message headers.

Also, as LewisPower requested, please verify that you can send mail successfully to other addresses using SNDDST.
