Add an EMAIL space to the *USRPRF object and allow that value to be retrieved with the qsyrusri api and RTVUSRPRF CL command
As we add more and more user profiles, the need to send those users email from the IBM i partition (using whatever) is important. However, today there is no way to associate an email address with an end-user's *USRPRF. For example, if I need to send a SPOOLED file to the user, I have to know what their email is when designing the program they are using. However, it the *USRPRF had an EMAIL space associated with it, similar to the HOME DIRECTORY, then I could simply call qsyrusri with format USRI0300 or if I'm using CL, the RTVUSRPRF EMAIL(&EMAIL) command.
The EMAIL address should be added to the end of format USRI0300 or perhaps a new format should be created with things like HOMEDIR, LOCALE and now EMAIL address. But a properly modified USRI0300 format would be acceptable.
