The statement changes the publisher's address for a given message type.
The Message Agent sends outgoing messages from a database by one of the supported message links. The extraction utility uses this address when executing the GRANT CONSOLIDATE statement in the remote database.
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 specified by 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.
Support for VIM and MAPI is deprecated.
