It's a problem at their site, ie *they* know how to fix it (if they
don't, they should call the software vendor). They have apparently
decided to restrict access to the internet via some exit such that
anybody can send but not everybody can receive mail. There is nothing you
can do about it, apart from complaining. If I were you, I'd give them a
choice between ensuring that anybody who sends can also receive, or

PROFS requires no configuration option, since it is delivered to the site

initially placed below them, I understand that you are not prevented from
moving it up and overwriting the lines in question if such is your
desire. Second, if you place a '//whatever JOB' card somewhere in the
message, the JCL pre-processor will discard anything it encountered
before. Neither is a good solution, but then PROFS isn't a good solution
