Allow different sender and receiver email addresses for sending alert mails in standard BPs

Currently in many standard BPs both the sender as well as the receiver of an email is coming from the admin users email address.

Unfortunately there are situations where the sender (sending system) is different from the required receiver address(es) which might be distribition lists etc.

So instead of modifying the standfard BPs it would be great if you could foresee some (optional) parameters in sandbox.cfg for MAIL_SENDER and MAIL_RECEIVER.

Behaviour should be:

Set mail-from to value of MAIL_SENDER, if MAIL_SENDER isn't configured use current behaviour

Set mail-to to value of MAIL_RECEIVER, if MAIL_RECEIVER isn't configured use current behaviour.

The affected standard BPs are:

  • AFTRouteEventEmailNotification

  • AlertNotification

  • BackupService

  • CEUInterop_DemoPOProcess

  • CheckExpireCertsEmailNotif

  • EDIINTErrorNotification

  • EmailNotification

  • EmailOnError

  • ErrorNotification

  • EventNotification

  • oftpCheckCertNotification

  • oftpCRLCheck

  • POPDemo4Extensions

  • POPDemo4Filenames

  • PurgeAll

  • Recover.bpml

  • RestoreService

  • ResumeSoftStop

  • Schedule_AssociateBPsToDocs

  • Schedule_AutoTerminateService

  • Schedule_BackupService

  • Schedule_BPLinkagePurgeService

  • Schedule_DataSweeper

  • Schedule_IndexBusinessProcessService

  • Schedule_MailboxEvaluateAllAutomaticRules

  • Schedule_PurgeService

  • SMTPNotification


  • SWIFTNet7EmailNotification

  • WebSuiteEmailNotif

  • WebXDemoEmailNotif

How will this idea be used?

This idea will allow more flexible configuration of SMTP mail in standard B2B Integrator BPs without need to change (and rechange after Fix) them
