The Message Agent sends outgoing messages from a database using one of the supported message links. Return messages for users
employing the specified link are sent to the specified address as long as the remote database is created by the Extraction
utility. The Message Agent starts links only if it has remote users for those links.
The address is the publisher's address under the specified message system. If it is an email system, the address string must
be a valid email address. If it is a file-sharing system, the address string is a subdirectory of the directory set in the
SQLREMOTE environment variable, or of the current directory if that is not set. You can override this setting on the GRANT
CONSOLIDATE statement at the remote database.
To remove the address, execute a CREATE REMOTE MESSAGE TYPE statement without an ADDRESS clause.
The dbinit utility creates message types automatically, without an address. Unlike other CREATE statements, the CREATE REMOTE
MESSAGE TYPE statement does not give an error if the type exists; instead it alters the type.
