If you edit with PC

The mail server will be UNIX, that be careful with code for line break and character code.

  • About code for line break
    Set the line break as "LF" for list file.
    If you forward files following the procedure with WinSCP shown on this page
    character code has already been converted to the UNIX's line break, that there is no need for conversion.
  • About Japanese character code
    If you use Japanese in comment text, use ISO-2022-JP (JIS).
    Regards to the code for line break and Japanese character, please refer below.
  1. Create and edit file with the same name as the name of management file in the registration notice mail.
  2. Copy management file where the mail server specifies. Following example is to when WinSCP is used;
    1. After you activate WinSCP, click "[セッション]-Session", and enter the following information. Then click "[ログイン]-login".
