Ask the Wizard Questions

Mail: SMTP from mail

The Question is:

I'm binging up UCX Version 3.3 to get access to Internet
Mail.  With newer version of VMS you can send mail using
the VMS Mail Utility by specifying and e-mail address of
the formatt;


at the TO: prompt in mail.  In VMS 5.5-2 you have to specify


Is there a way of getting VMS 5.5-2 Mail to allow easier
access to sending Internet Mail ?

By the way; what I'm doing is using a workstation in the
cluster to provide the service of connecting to SMTP mail
for the cluster so that I don't have to license the main
VAX's for Internet which would cost a bundle !!!  That's
why there is the inetnode:: on the from of the mail message.


The Answer is:

    Update to Open VMS V6.1 or beyond.
