SAP Configuring Email SCOT

How to config and send email from SAP

  The Details that are required before configuration.

1. SMTP Mail Server Domain Name
2. SMTP Port Number (usually 25).

It is required to configure SAPconnect settings for every client that is used for send processes (E-mails, Faxes, SMS).

Step No 1

Go To Tx Code SCOT

1. Enter the Value for Default Domain

Under Settings -> Default Domain, define the domain of the SAP system client. This allows for the following to take place:

1.1* The SMTP plug-in logs on to the mail server using the domain as ID.

1.2* The message ID of the outbound e-mails is assembled with this domain.

1.3* If an SAP user who does not have an Internet mail address sends an e-mail, a sender address consisting of the SAP user name and this domain is generated.

Choose the Menu Option

Views -> Nodes -> in the subsequent screen, expand INT -> double click on SMTP

Step No 2 In the Subsequent Screen… enter the following informations.

  How often the Mail should be sent. (mostly every 5 minutes)

  Check the “checkbox” “Node in use”

  Enter the “SMTP Mail Server Host Name”

  Enter the SMTP Port Number (usually 25).

  Click on the button “Set”.

Step No 3 In the Subsequent Screen… enter the following informations.

Address Areas :- To which all address (domains) the mails can be sent.

“*” means emails can go to any E-Mail Addreses, while * means the mails can go to only to users in the domain

Step No 4

  Go to the menu option

View -> Jobs

In the subsequent Screen, Click on the Create Button

Step 5

In the subsequent screen, enter some job name.

Step 6 In the subsequent screen, Click once on the “SAP&CONNECTALL” and double click on the button “Schedule Job”.

Step 7 In the subsequent screen

  Click on the Button “Schedule Periodically” and select how often the Background job should run (mostly every 5 minutes)

  Click on create button

A new node will appear in the Jobs screen.

In Tx Code SM37, check whether the New Job, is scheduled or not.

      Hi Ranjith,

      I am facing some weird issue with Sending mails from SAP.

      We have set "*" under SCOT for Address area and we are able to send mails from SAP to any domain mail account but to the country specific domains.

      Example : I have sent a test mail to my personal id and but I have received mail only on the mail with domain "" but nothing received on the mail with "" domain.

      We have this problem with so many country specific domains like "", "", "", "", "", "" etc...

      We also tried adding these domains under Address area in SCOT but still the mails are not delivered to the recipients who have their mail accounts on country specific domains..

      Have you seen any such cases earlies?


      Ashok Oleti.

      Hello Ranjith,


      Is it also possible to make the outbox "Event Driven" instead of a scheduled job every 5 minutes.

      As soon as there is mail to be sent, the job should run.

      Please provide detailed config, if possible.
