From the Netview Windows User's Guide -> Working with events and event
filters -> Actions on events:

Using the Tivoli NetView program, you can specify actions that are
automatically performed when a specific event occurs when you select
Options --> Trap Settings. This feature provides quick notification
for events that are critical to your environment. The types of actions
you can configure include the following:

Display an error dialog using the nvecho command. Refer to the IBM(R)
Tivoli(R) NetView(R) for Windows(R) Programmer's Reference for
information about the nvecho command.

Send an e-mail message using the nvmail command. Refer to the IBM
Tivoli NetView for Windows Programmer's Reference for more

Send a page using the nvpage command. See Paging support for more information.

You can also configure any action that you can run in a batch file.
You must specify the fully qualified path name for the batch file and
enclose any arguments to the batch file in double quotes (for example,
c:\mydir\myaction.bat "param1 param2").

Manual page for nvmail (Netview for Windows Programmer's Reference ->
Reference Pages -> nvmail)


Purpose: Sends a mail message.


nvmail -server servername -recipient user-mailbox [-subject
subject-string ][-message message-string|-file file-name]


The nvmail command can be used to send an e-mail message. It can be
invoked upon receipt of a trap to send an e-mail message to the
operator in response to the event. Use Options -> Trap Settings to
configure a trap to execute this command.

-recipient user-mailbox

can be specified.

-subject subject-string

flag is optional

-message message-string
A quoted string that will appear as they body of the mail message.
This option can not be specified if the -file option is used.

-file file-name
A fully qualified file name to be transmitted as the body of the mail
message. This option cannot be specified if the -message option is


nvmail -server mailserver.acme.com -recipient reed@adam12.com -subject
"Segment down" -message "Respond as backup"

Implementation Specifics
- nvmail will only work with SMTP mail servers.
- Only one recipient can be specified with the nvmail command.
- nvmail does not transmit files as attachments.

I hope that helps you!
