The simple verification of mail recipients before sending, the transparency of the sending of messages and the flexibility of senders, texts and attachments were important decision criteria for us. The user-friendly add-on supports our business processes also at our international locations. Competent contacts.”

Connect to mail server and define routing – In transaction SCOT, under “Business Communication Administration = Settings = Outbound Messages = SMTP Nodes,” you make the following settings:
Default domain – In the SAPConnect administration, you enter the default domain with transaction SCOT under “Settings = Domain”. Here you define the domain of the SAP company, e.g. erp-prod.mycompany.com.
Maintain Senders – In User Management, you enter an e-mail address for each user. This serves as the sender when sending mails. Enter the e-mail address in the “E-mail address” box. For maintenance, use transaction SU01. If possible, use the domain of the SAP company as a domain, such as the erp-prod.mycompany.com (see default domain).
Create TestMail – Use the SAPoffice transactions SO01 or SBWP to generate a test mail. This will check the correct sending of the e-mail from your SAP system.
Control Mail shipping – SAPConnect send orders you control via transaction SOST. Because here you can see the e-mail created in the previous step.
Important note – The SAP system connects you to a mail server on both the initial and output sides. In any case, you must equip them with appropriate virus scanners and spam filters before using it. In addition, it is recommended that you disconnect the receive socket from the firewall to the outside. This means that service by third parties is not possible. It is also recommended that you do not communicate with a mail server outside the firewall on the outbound side. The instructions differ slightly in different SAP release states. You must make these SAPConnect settings in each company that performs send processes.

Yes, but only with programming. SAP has developed the BADI – BADI_MM_PO_OC_EMAIL for this purpose. This allows you to change the sender’s e-mail. Please note 2171371. Without programming, the email address can be maintained with the background user. If there is an address there, it is used. Otherwise, SAPConnect generates an address from USERID and domain.
If you want to send a document, you can maintain the mail title (subject) as well as a mail text in Customizing for the message type.
As with business letters, e-mail is subject to minimum levies. In transaction SODIS, you maintain these mandatory information.

SMTP – The Simple Mail Transfer Protocol is a protocol for exchanging e-mail on computer networks. It is primarily used to initiate and forward e-mail. E-mail collection is done via other protocols such as POP3 or IMAP. Typically, servers use port 25 when they receive e-mail. Newer servers now use port 587 to authenticate users.
TLS – Transport Layer Security (TLS) or the predecessor Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is an encryption for secure data transmission over the Internet. Starting with version 3.0, the protocol is further developed and standardized under the name TLS.
SMTP-Auth – This authentication is a protocol and supplement to ESMTP. This allows the mail server to authenticate the mail client using a username and password.
SCOT – SAPConnect transaction to set up external communication.
SAPConnect – provides a unified interface for external communication. This is used, for example, for MAILVERSAND. SAPconnect enables connection to the Internet via the so-called SMTP plug-in of the SAP NetWeaver Application Server.
SMTP plugin – The SMTP plugin is available from SAP Web Application Server 6.10. The plugin works with any SMTP-enabled mail server. No other external components are required.
SOST, SOSB, SOSG and SOIN – SAP transactions for an overview of the send orders. This allows you to see all messages sent and received via SAPConnect.
