Mail configuration in SAP allows for sending and receiving emails for which external email infrastructure is needed , it comes along with Netweaver ABAP. Steps are very simple

  1. Make sure port 25 is not used on the server

Important: Verify with system team!!!

ps -ef | grep sendmail

netstat -nap | grep :25

  1. Add permission to icmbnd

>chown root:sapsys icmbnd

>chmod 4750 icmbnd

  1. Profile parameters:
    • Is /SMTP/virt_host_0 = *:*;
    • icm/server_port_1 = PROT=SMTP,PORT=25,TIMEOUT=120,PROCTIMEOUT=120,EXTBIND=1
  2. Go to t-code – SU01
    • Create a user for incoming mail
      • Name: MAIL<SID><CLIENT NO>
      • Type: Service
