Outlook-friendly sender name in Mainframe SMTP headers

By david  //  Technical Tips  //  Comments Off on Outlook-friendly sender name in Mainframe SMTP headers

When receiving SMTP emails from the mainframe with a “from” address claimed to be on the Outlook Server, Outlook may have a difficult time connecting the profile and providing the contact information in the original email.

The following solution has worked best. The name should be enclosed in quotes, followed by a space and then the bracketed email address of the sender.

“Last, First I”   <first.last@companyname.com>

To use the IBM example at Using batch SMTP command in TSO utilities as a starting point,
 the sender’s email address would be inserted on the From line below:

MAIL FROM:
RCPT TO:
RCPT TO:
DATA
Date: Thur, 26 Mar 92 21:48:57 EST
From: “Last, First I”   <first.last@companyname.com>
To:
Cc: Subject: update
