The Answer is :
1: UCX SHOW VERSION
Given the UCX facility name, you are running an old version; a
version prior to V5.0. As of this writing, V5.4 is current.
2: Forwarding of MAIL from the OpenVMS MAIL utility is not directly
related to POP or IMAP. POP and IMAP are protocols that allow
remote mail clients to access a mail server, and would have to
be configured -- as well as passage through any applicable
firewalls -- for remote access to mail stored on an OpenVMS
The OpenVMS MAIL utility simply accepts an arriving message and
forwards it to the specified address -- the obvious question
would be one of direct reachability. Can you send email
directly to the specified email address?
The OpenVMS Wizard would specify the forwarding address as
and would tend to omit the quotes and the SMTP transport
3: You will want to discuss with your local network folks exactly
what SMTP relay -- if any -- should be used. You will also
want to discuss whether or not this forwarding is permissible,
as corporations can have policies that restrict or prohibit
Please contact the support center directly, as details of the local
IP and SMTP configuration will be required.
