Re: vax vms mail help needed

IS YOUR SHIFT KEY BROKEN?

It might help if we knew whose IP software
you're using, and on what. You might start
with this:

tcpip show version

Re: vax vms mail help needed

Microsoft Outlook tool is not a mail server; this matter is very likely centrally involving the OpenVMS VAX host that is sending the mail, or the mail server (and probably an Exchange server) that is managing your Outlook mail.

Does the same SMTP return address show up when you send OpenVMS VAX mail to another SMTP host server that is not associated with your Exchange server? Can you confirm this is associated with OpenVMS VAX and not with your Exchange server?

Perform the following command:

$ SHOW LOGICAL TCPIP$SMTP_FROM

For older releases of TCP/IP Services:

$ SHOW LOGICAL UCX$SMTP_FROM

And it could well be you're not running TCP/IP Services here, too.

Re: vax vms mail help needed

Thanks Hoff,

I tried the above commands but the logicals donot have any translation in my system.
where can I find the info about the mail environments and their default setting?
If I can change the node names and From address then it may be possible.

Re: vax vms mail help needed

Ravi,
If you are using TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS, you could define the logical name TCPIP$SMTP_FROM to be something like:

This will then show up in the "From:" address field (unless something else fiddles with it).

I'll admit that the question wasn't worth
much, but it sure beats your non-answer.

And at this rate, we may never know.

Re: vax vms mail help needed

You can define the tcpip$smtp_from logical:

$ define tcpip$smtp_from "your.name@company.com"

And then use VMS mail.

I am no sure what you mean with this.

Can't you edit this second .COM file and add your define command in here?
