Sending email to a Mail Group on Mail Exchange Server

0 Kudos

Hello Experts,

We are required to send an email notification via ABAP program to a group of users.

The client will not go ahead with creating a Distribution List in SAP. Rather they want to use a Mail Group defined on the Exchange Server.

I've tried a bit with the RECEIVER, REC_TYPE combinations without success.

Moreover the Mail Group name has spaces e.g. 'Test Mail Group'.

Please advise what can be done from the ABAP and Business Communication Administration (SCOT) perspective.

Thanks!

Even for the DLs created on exchange server, if you go into the properties tab, you will get the SMTP email address. You can use that email address to send the email from SAP.

Thanks,

Thanks for the prompt response, Juwin.

I had tried to look up for something like this, but I'm using Lotus Notes (for only a couple of months now), and cant seem to find this information in the properties. Please refer the image below.

Can you help me with some further suggestions please?

Thanks,

Zakir

Sorry, never used that.

May be check with your exchange server guys. I am sure Lotus Notes also should have an equivalent for this, being a competitor.

Thanks,

Hi,

Every group on exchange server have an email address.

At our site this the only way to send a mail to distribution list from SAP .(it looks like a regular email address)

Consult the exchange people.

Regards.
