Email Built-In Functions Notes

An email message that is to be sent must be constructed commencing with a call to MAIL_START followed by other calls in the Email Handling series to add the data. The message is then sent using the MAIL_SEND call.

Note: Only use Email Handling Built-In Functions in applications that are to fully execute under the control of IBM i or Windows.

In the Windows environment, these Built-In Functions should not be used in functions that are invoked on remote Windows server systems.

Note: For Email BIFs to work locally, you must set the PROFILE correctly.
To find the correct PROFILE, go to Outlook\Tools\Options\Mail Service.
