With the update to MAILTOOL to allow the use of configuration files SPLTOOL was also recently updated to allow you to specify a configuration file as well. This of course only applies to the SPL2EMAIL and SPL2EMAILB commands.
Specifying a configuration file is the same as with MAILTOOL. See the example below:
SPL2EMAIL FILE(QPUOPRTF) JOB(165329/BVSTONE/QPADEV0003) SPLNBR(1) FROM(*FIRST) TO(*LAST) TOADDR(firstname.lastname@example.org) ATTACHMENT(attachment.pdf) SUBJECT('Here is your file') MESSAGE('Please find your PDF file attached.') CONFIG('/bvstools/bvstone_mailtool.json')
You can see that on the SPL2EMAIL command the CONFIG parameter is specified, and the JSON configuration file to be used is specified as a fully qualified path and filename.
The settings in this file will be used when sending the email. The normal rules apply, such as the settings will not override the parameters for Subject, Message, Recipients and Attachment Name parameters. But, this does make it easy to take advantage of the settings used with MAILTOOL Plus and the Mail Router as well as any other settings such as User ID and Password required for the Mail Router.
The SPL2EMAILB command would function the same, as shown in this example:
SPL2EMAILB OUTQ(*ALL) FILE(*ALL) USER(BVSTONE) JOB(*ALL) JOBNUM(*ALL) SPLNUM(*ALL) USRD(*ALL) FRMT(*ALL) TOADDR(email@example.com) SUBJECT('Here is your file') MESSAGE('Please find your PDF file attached.') EXT(PDF) CONFIG('/bvstools/bvstone_mailtool.json')
All spooled files that match the criteria will be converted and emailed using the settings in the specified configuration file.
