Delivery Receipt in SOST

0 Kudos


I'm currently having some problems with confirmation receipts in SAP Connect. I can send e-mails just find, but although SAP Connect is configured to expect receipts it's getting none.

My scenario is this:

- User A has exchange address userA(at) I configured in SU01 this address as its user address.

- User A sends a mail using CL_BCS, to userB who has address userB(at)

- SAP must receive delivery (not read) receipt.

E-mails are reaching userB outlook inbox, but the delivery confirmation isn't reaching SAP. So my questions are:

- Is this scenario possible at all? I think so, but I really need confirmation.

- If so, do the Exchange people need to configure a rule to forwards replies to user A to the SAP SMTP port?

I don't need to receive inbound e-mails, just delivery confirmations.

I think read receipts or not read receipts are not possible using simple SMTP nodes. Have a look at the SAP Exchange Connector.

I had implemented this roughly 4 years ago so I do not remember if it provided this facility, however i found a page in its documentation that speaks about the same.

I think you have to configure SMTP port at SAP level.
