Configuring email profiles


To send and receive emails for your lines of business, you must configure the outgoing profiles. BMC Helix Business Workflows lets you create only one outbound email for a line of business. You can define a single email ID and password with different details, such as Reply to Address, Email Address. You can use the different outbound email entries to create email profiles for different lines of business.

For outbound emails, the system always checks for the outgoing email profile. Requesters receive emails from the email ID that is configured in the outgoing email profile.

To create an email profile for outgoing emails for a line of business

As an example, if you configured two line of business — HR and Finance in BMC Helix Business Workflows then create your own email address specific to them:

  • HR line of business: hr@calbro.com
  • Finance line of business: finance@calbro.com

Use the following table to configure an email profile:

#StepsExample
1.

Raise a request with BMC Support for an outbound email entry with the same default email address and password provided by BMC. Specify the following details:

  • Number of lines of business that you plan to use
  • Names that you want to use for the lines of business
  • Reply to Address and Email Address that you want to use for the lines of business
    For the Reply To Address and Email address fields, specify different email IDs that have masquerading or forwarding rules to the BMC configured email address.

Incoming: incoming@bmc.com

  • HROutgoing: hr@bmc.com
    Reply To Address/Email Address: hr@calbro.com which has forwarding rule to hr@bmc.com
