As we all had come across for a requirement of Mail, and auto report scheduling from SAP Business One, Some ask that we need mail should automatically triggered once document is posted, auto report should be executed and mail on the provide parameter.
Earler we need to install outlook integration add-on but from 9.1 we have a feasibility to select by which mean we want to shoot mail.
In SAP 9.1 we have option to select Default E-Mail Method, whether to select SBO Mailer or Outlook E-Mail, from 9.1 if we want to use outlook E-mail, then only requirement is to have outlook installed in your system.
In this document i will brief you steps to configure E-mail method as SBO mailer.
Following are the steps:
1. First step is to select the option of SBO mailer under Administration–>System Initilizaion–>General Settings–>
Service tab Under service tab, there is an option to select default method through mail should be triggered.
2. Once done with the above setting, user need to configure SBO Mailer setting under service manager.
Under service manageràSelect SBO Mailer (from Drop down), go to settings.
And map the Mail setting. for SMTP Server: need to provide the SMTP server details such as : mail.google.com or smtp.google.com, for configuring to any client location ask Client’s IT manager about the SMTP server details.
And remember by default port available is 25, but this may not work, and may be a scenario occurs that you may ask for SMTP Port to IT person and it may not be available with him also. So to work with SBO mailer, Port should be either “587” or “465”. The repsonse time will be in a minute for Port-587 and Port-465 repsonses soon.
Point To Remember: Please enter credential for User ID and Password belongs to same SMTP server, so that mail would trigger from the provicded Email-ID.
This option to enter user id and password, user need to select the Authentication as “Basic Authentication” which is the safest way to configure.
For some SMTP server TLS encryption requires to be enable and for some it is not, so it may be hit and trial method to check whether required or not. Because sometimes it may happen that you had configured each and every steps and also had checked TLS Encryption but E-mail is not triggred from SBO, so if you un-check and then try and then you get E-mail in your inbox.
3.Next setting is to configure connections , under service manager–>SBO Mailer
Click on Connection tab configure DB Type and DB Server and then next is to select the databse for which we want to send e-mail using SBO mailer.
