We are attempting to use SMTP to send reports to our customers. We have a mail server and a firewall. The messages never reach our mail server. Could you please tell me the steps to configure this.
Many times it is not possible to send email from the AS/400 to e-mail outside of the LAN due to firewall protection.
The solution is to forward the outgoing mail via the existing mail server (for example exchange server) using the procedure described here.
