Verifying rmail on UNIX

Verifying rmail on UNIX

Before you configure email in a session or workflow, verify that the rmail tool is accessible on UNIX machines.
  1. Log in to the UNIX system as the PowerCenter user who starts the Informatica services.
  2. Type the following line at the prompt and press Enter:
    rmail <your fully qualified email address>,<second fully qualified email address>
  3. To indicate the end of the message, enter a period (.) on a separate line and press Enter. Or, type
    ^D
    .
    You should receive a blank email from the email account of the PowerCenter user. If not, locate the directory where rmail resides and add that directory to the path.
