MAIL and sending a text body rather than file

Rather than:
MAIL/SUB="Test" FILE.TXT smtp%"JOE.GO@uch.edu"

I want to send

$ MAIL/SUB="Test" -
This is a test of an email
block of text sent to a
single person
$ smtp%"JOE.BLOW@uch.edu"

I had done this task several years back but can not seem to get the syntax correct and nothing is provided in HELP. Is this still available in VMS 7 ?

FILE.TXT -> SYS$INPUT ?

HELP DECK
but examples seem sparse.

Bingo!!!
mail/subject="Test" SYS$INPUT smtp%"joe.go@uch.edu" was what I needed.
Many thanks,

That comes from assigning points, doing
which, I suspect, requires that you re-open
the thread. It could be an educational
experience.

As Steven said, you will have to reopen the thread, assign points then close it:
