Automatic email for backup job log on AS/400

How to automatically generate an email after the job log on a System i has completed the backup.

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:

SNDDST TYPE(*LMSG) 

 TOINTNET((Kenneth@mymail.com)) 

 LONGMSG('My backup process has finished.') 

 IMPORTANCE(*HIGH) 

 PTY(*HIGH) 

 SUBJECT('Message from the iSeries:')

 

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