Many customers have asked where they can find the latest information, presentations, and configuration guides for E-Mail Response Management System (ERMS) for SAP CRM. So I’ve put together the following, hopefully comprehensive, list:

Configuration Guides

  • SAP Note 940882 (ERMS FAQ Note) that contained links to two presentations: an ERMS Overview presentation and an ERMS How-To Guide.
  • Article, “How to Set Up Threading in ERMS” by Sigrid Wieshofer
  • Updated ERMS Configuration Guide created by Amrish Singh, a Senior CRM Solution Consultant with UCS Solutions (Pty) Ltd. This updated guide is based on CRM 7.0 and includes up-to-date screens shots and instructions. **Please note that the information provided by Amrish is not part of SAP standard documentation and it is thus not a matter of or covered by SAP standard support.
  • Advanced Inbound Email Handling by Christian Drumm (how to forward emails from personal Microsoft Outlook accounts so that the emails can be processed by SAP CRM ERMS, including auto-response to original senders)

          Hi Tai


          Take a look at the standard Action processing provided by SAP.


          There’s loads of good documentation in SAP HELP and SCN.
