we' d like to implement email-functionality through the portal. We would like every user to see his inbox and to be able to send mails to outside our domain.
I used standard iView com.sap.netweaver.coll.SendEMail for implementing the "send"-functionality. Although i cant see the mail system i created in systemlandscape in user mapping, i m quite surprised it works!
Every user is able to send email in his own name via our mail server mail.company.com.
Can you explain this phenomenon? How can I access the users inbox?
Thanks for your hints
com.sap.netweaver.coll.SendEMail uses the KMC SendMailService. This again uses the transport for JavaMail defined under System Admin - System Config - KM - Config - Collaboration - Groupware Transports - Mail Transport (I think from a first glance at the code; at least on EP5, it was the MAIL channel which was used for this, see http://help.sap.com/saphelp_ep50sp5/helpdata/en/3d/b58436b8a911d5993900508b6b8b11/frameset.htm
Accessing the mail inbox of a user means attaching the corresponding server, for example the exchange server.
There are instructions on how to do this on SDN...
Hope it helps
