Return values from TCPIP$SMTP_SEND_FROM_FILE

Does anyone know what the possible return values are from this routine - the documentation doesn't specify.

From some testing, I have seen 0 returned when the call is successful and 1 when it is not, however, I just had a case of it being successful but still returning 1.

(OpenVMS 8.3, IA64, calling from Pascal)

Hi Chris,
For an authoritative answer, you probably need to go to the sources.

If the routine isn't following OpenVMS condition code conventions, I'd raise it as a bug!

Re: Return values from TCPIP$SMTP_SEND_FROM_FILE

It was last thing yesterday, and I think I got myself confused with my testing.
While there are no returned conditions documented for this routine, the return of 1 is SS$NORMAL, so in the words of Jonesy from Dad's Army...Don't Panic, Don't Panic !

(As I am trying to send an email to an SMSing service, I was getting confused a bit when the SMS was not working, even though the email was).

Never used to be so easy to confuse me. :-)
