Some of the emails I’m sending aren’t being received: what can I do about it?

You need to make sure that you can detect and respond to email issues when they arise. You must expect there to be problems when communicating with customers and users by email, as, in the real world, email addresses will be miss-keyed by your users and customers will not always inform you when they change their email addresses or your contact leaves the company and is replaced. You need to make sure you have procedures in place to detect and respond to failed emails.

The steps you need to follow to set up IBM i email, as well as some tips for managing and troubleshooting IBM i email, are explained in our Email Setup Guide.
