Question about "mail" attribute for email templates


CONFIG MODE -> SETTINGS -> EMAIL
Verify you see "advanced settings" with the "view" menu.

Looking at the -User Email Attribute-. It is set to "mail" by default -
which is perfectly valid for most folks that will be using our system.

However, we are also using the "homeEmailAddress" attrib for the
"homeInfo" eDir aux class.

The folks with homeEmailAddress populated may (or may not) have a "mail"
attrib populated.

Is there a recommend way to adjust email notices for account
activation/password reset, etc. to flow through *both* or *the one used
for activation or lookup query* ?

It seems odd that it is so easy to customize all the other attribs for
searching and display but the email templates can only go to one
attrib.

I don't want to combine the two mentioned email attribs because each has
separate business requirements and those affect downstream IDM-connected
systems.

Open to suggestions - thanks.

I don't see a way around this limitation other than to create a new
email attrib (i.e. ssprEmail) and populate that based on mail and
homeEmailAddress changes.

I don't believe there is a way to do this currently, I'd recommend
entering an enhancement request at https://secure-www.novell.com/rms/.

Re: Question about "mail" attribute for email templates


This thread is over a year old, but I have a followup question (also I
am using a newer version of SSPR, v3.2): In all of the email templates,
there is a To field that is populated with @User:Email@ by default. Is
that field functional? I tried changing it, but the email always seems
to go to the default mail attribute.
Thanks
Russ
