It is called workflow and you set it up in the JDE.ini file on both the server and your local stations. We just had a thread about this on the list. I would recomend doing a search on the JDELIST forum.
There is a document on Knowledge Garden that may help. It is doc # ott-99-0085. Or you can find it in the Knowledge Browser under Workflow / Messaging.
Hope this helps
