Why yes, I do! In fact, I was about to ask an advanced question about sending
email!

I have a JCL set up to email reports by merging the headers and body (report)
and copying it to a file with destination TCPSMTP. This creates an email
which contains a report, but I would like to be able to send a data file
as an email attachment. Has anyone else attempted this?

Thanks,
Ubi
