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:

  1. Send email messages in plain text, TIF, RTF, or (with eSendIT or Davince System's PDF Tools) PDF format.
  2. Copy mainframe reports to a network folder for archival in plain text, TIF, RTF, or PDF (See above for PDF creation software dependency.)
  3. Upload mainframe listings to an FTP server using any of the supported file formats. (See above)
