CHGSMTPA (FWDHUBSVR keyword)

We are in the process of going from V5R4 (our old 520 iSeries) to V7R1 (our new shiny E4B iSeries) but sending mail did not work. Getting weird messages in QSYSOPR. After all my ideas were exhausted I was lucky in the last seconds before giving up and handing it over to the IBM guys. It appears that the CHGSMTPA command in V7R1 has some new parameters/keywords, FWDHUBSVR being one of them. Freshly added keywords get a default, in this case *NONE, and that appeared to be the villain.

Giving FWDHUBSVR the same value as MAILROUTER solved all my problems (why this new keyword was introduced/needed and why IBM didn’t gave it the default value of the MAILROUTER value I don’t know, but this problem gave me a real headache for 2 days)

CHGSMTPA MAILROUTER(‘10.100.10.103’) FIREWALL(*YES) FWDHUBSVR(‘10.100.10.103’)

    Whats up this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually
    code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      It has a ‘rich text’ editor with some WYSIWYG features, but you can switch to the ‘code/text’ view if you want. I have just simple posts (layout), so I’m not bothered by this. I just checked, things like [table] are not in the rich text editor so you have to code them yourself.

    Greetings! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

    Gotta love the Internet, gift from God (Surely ARPA had different plans!)

    This great web page also resolved the issue I had fought for weeks in trying to be able to send csv reports out by email. And just in time.
