Mailing a spool file isn't as easy as just sending a message. There are several steps that have to be done.
To e-mail a job log you could do this:
DLTF FILE(EMAILDATA)SNDDST TYPE(*DOC)
DSTD('Some subject text')
MSG('Some important message text')
There are also plenty of very reasonably priced packages available that can easily be integrated into any of your processes requiring the e-mailing of spool files. If you are going to be e-mailing a lot of spool files, this would be the way to go. A simple Google search like - email spool files iSeries – will show you many product options.
