Enabling the Email Rule Engine
The last step that you perform when configuring the Email Rule Engine is to enable the email service request feature.
Before you begin
To perform any Email Rule Engine configuration procedure, you must have Email Rule Config permissions (these are Foundation related permissions). Also, ensure that the Remedy Email Engine is installed on your system. This includes ensuring that the specific email inbox that your system will use to receive the incoming email is configured. For information about configuring mailboxes, see Configuring BMC Remedy Email Engine.
Also, for the user creating the email service request, one of the following conditions must be satisfied:
- The user's People record is configured with their email address and a Login ID.
- The user’s email address is configured as a ‘Trusted address’ and a recipient is associated with it.
To set the Email Rule Engine status to Active
- From the Application Administration Console, select Custom Configuration > Foundation > Email Engine Rules > Configure Rules, and then click Open.
- On the Inbound Email Rule Configuration form, ensure that the Inbound email status is set to Active.
