iSeries (AS400) MSF Job Ended, Reason code 05

Hi, I have attached a  printout of an error job we get when trying to send emails using SNDDST.
We get a CPFAF95 reason code 05, Mail Server Framework (MSF) job ended.

Exit Point program QZMFSNPA in Library QSYS for exit point QIBM_QZMFMS_ADR_RSL indicated the MSF job is to be ended.

Does anyone know what causes and/or can Fix this? this is twice in about 3 weeks.
Web searching reveals some sketchy fixes. Wanted to ask me some Experts :)

Thanks in advance.

Bob,

Need more info to diagnose.  Page down, and you'll see instructions on what to do for the 05 return code right in the message description.  Follow instructions, and post the additional info it points you to here.

Anything change in the system recently?  Upgrades, PTFs, product removed, etc?

Hi Gary, no changes lately. That's what we cant figure out.
The Page down portion wanted us to seek the Job Log, but this happened during an IPL and the log was cleared.
This may have to stay open for a couple weeks, until it happens again, but I will do just that. I'll get as many screen prints, etc, as I can and get them out here.

Thanks again for the help. I'll be back.

Here is all it gives us for 04 and 05, and this time the job log was cleared. We'll catch it next time when its not an IPL.
Thanks

This error hasn't happened since I posted above. Will provide more info when we see it again. We ended and restarted it and no problems. It kept on trucking so far.
Thanks

This happened again at our last IPL this last weekend, and we cant find the area in the log, so we did something different to get the log next time.
I'm gonna close this and if we cant find it may re-open.
Thanks again for the help.
