The pdm_mail utility is used in notifications to send emails by sending email information to the pdm_mail_nxd process. The pdm_mail utility can also be used for commands, but not to both. If no parameters are used, then the default behavior of using the NX_NTF_xxxx variable to pass parameters is in effect.
For email, the utility is invoked as follows:
pdm_mail [-i [-s subject] [-e email_address] [-q]] [-p] [-M] [-F] [-T] [-B] [-H] [-N] [-R] [-h]
  • -i
    Uses STDIN instead of NTF variables. The following parameters are used for STDIN email behavior only:
    • -e
      Specifies the email address (for recipient).
    • -s
      Specifies the subject for the email.
    • -q
      Disables the display prompt for STDIN.
  • -p
    Utilizes pager logic. This option includes using the pager email address instead of the regular email address. Only the plain text version of the notification is used (no HTML).
  • -M
    Uses plain text only (no MIME) in body.
  • -F
    Specifies the From address of the email.
  • -T
    Specifies the Reply-To address of the email.
  • -B
    Specifies the body charset. This might be useful for pagers that do not support the UTF-8.
  • -H
    Specifies the header charset. This might be useful for pagers that do not support the UTF-8.
  • -N
    Specifies the Delivery Status Notification (DSN) Notify option.
  • -R
    Specifies the Delivery Status Notification (DSN) Return option.
  • -h
    Displays help on the utility.
For commands, the utility is invoked as follows:
Command to mail server
pdm_mail -c option [parameter]
Command to mail eater
pdm_mail -x option [parameter]
  • check_interval
    (-x only) Changes the check mail interval to a specified value (in seconds).
  • report_interval

On UNIX, the LIBPATH must be set before running several CA SDM utilities. Use
 pdm_task
 to set the LIBPATH before running a utility. For example, input "pdm_task pdm_clean_attachments ...".
