Automatic email for backup job log on AS/400

I would like for my daily backup job to email me the job log after it is finished, is there a way to do this?
If you have configured SMTP on your iSeries than you can use the SNDDST command:

Here is an example:



 LONGMSG('My backup process has finished.') 



 SUBJECT('Message from the iSeries:')


System not set up for SMTP mail? Take a look at these instructions for setting up SMTP mail.
