PTF needed to fix SMTP error

I am trying to use SMTP. When I type in STRTCPSVR *SMTP, multiple jobs of QTMSSRCP and QTSMTPSRVP started and the CPU % jumped to over 90% in a matter of minutes--other jobs started. What do I need to do to use SMTP and not bring the AS/400 to its knees?

Most likely it is a PTF. In searching, I found multiple PTFs for this type of error, depending on your release of OS/400. I would start with the PTF's and go to fixes and updates.

Good luck,
