  ‘Send to Home Addresses of Users’ (transaction SO16, register ‘Mail sy.grp‘). If you use this option SAP Office will redirect the mail to the e-mail address     maintained in the user settings. As a precondition to use this kind of automatic transfer you also have to maintain the standard communication method in the   user settings (INT E-Mail).


   How can i get ‘Confirmation of receipt’ with e-mail ?

   SCOT tcode will be beneficial follow this path –> Settings / Confirmation of Receipt


   Finally , buyer and someonelse can get this e-mail.
