From our system workflow three mails are sending to different recipients. Two mails are sending through WF-BATCH user and another one mail is send through ADMINU user. Now we want send other two mails also should send through ADMINU user only not by WF-BATCH.

We know that WF-BATCH is the standard user provided by SAP will send mail through workflow. but how to change this user.

In ECC 6.0 we could see the transaction SWNCONFIG to make changes for sender. But in 4.7 that transaction is not there.

So could you please tell me, how to change sender of workflow mail from WF-BATCH to ADMINU.

Thanks in Advance.

What email address do these emails come from? What's different about the case where it comes from ADMINU?

If you search this forum for WF-BATCH you'll see many similar questions.

My response is to have a dummy foreground step beforehand assigned to the user that you want sending out the mails ; the next background task is usually run under the same username.
