What types of messages can be sent using CICS/Fax?
CICS/Fax was originally designed as a fax server for IBM mainframes running z/OS and z/VSE. It still does this, but it can also be used to:
- Send email messages in plain text, TIF, RTF, or (with eSendIT or Davince System's PDF Tools) PDF format.
- Copy mainframe reports to a network folder for archival in plain text, TIF, RTF, or PDF (See above for PDF creation software dependency.)
- Upload mainframe listings to an FTP server using any of the supported file formats. (See above)
