Inbound emails stripped of .FAX attachments

G'day all,
I'm on a 620 system up to basis patch 60.
When an inbound email contains an attachment with extension .FAX the attachment disappears!!
Any other extensions are fine. The .FAX files in my case are actually .TIF files but the software creates them with .FAX extension.
If I rename the file to have a .FOX extension for example, the attachment makes it into SAP just fine, as does any other extensions I've tried (.TXT, .DOC, .ZIP, .PDF, .XLS etc)
This happens whether I send to a normal SAP users inbox or whether I handle the inbound request using my own SO50 configured class.
We've turned on the Inbound and General trace in SCOT and there is nothing too exciting. The log does show there is a .FAX attachment present (so it's not stripped by the external mail system) but it doesn't indicate that it's been removed.
Please note!! This is NOT inbound Fax handling. It's just a mail that happens to have an attachment which ends with the extension .FAX.
Any ideas??
Thanks,
Mark

Hello,
Can you please check SAP note:
813619
make sure the customizing of the type .FAX is correct.
Best regards,
Dezso

  • Inbound email - delete attachments/content?

    We are using ERMS to process inbound mails. Occasionally, agents  will receive unsolicited attachments which we would like (from a legal point of view) to remove from the email.
    Is there a standard solution to allow for specific email attachments to be deleted?

    I managed to delete the physical attachment
    inbound emails and their attachments are handled by KPRO (Knowledge Provider) - the field SOOD-EXTCT has the value "K" for these entries
    KPRO handles storage and access in quite a well documented fashion - if you know where to look!
    I found these 2 resources online:
    Document Management with KPro - SAP Knowledge Provider (BC-SRV-KPR) - SAP Library
    There is a list of FMs including one called SDOK_PHIO_DELETE.
    To get the PHIO ID, I followed the guide here:
    SAP Content Management - Link between SAP Objects and originals - Product Lifecycle Management - SCN Wiki
    I hope this is useful for someone else - and gives us a starting point for creating a custom report

  • Inbound Email Attachments with MIME type of application/octet-stream

    I'm hoping someone can help me here. I'm trying to start a BPEL process via email. The email can consist of no attachments or multiple attachments. All the attachments should be text, e.g. XML, CSV, etc.
    Where I have got to is receiving the email and writing the attachments to variables. All is fine until I get an attachment that has a MIME type of application/octet-stream. I would only expect to see this for files that are not text based.
    Does anyon know how I can inturpret this type so I can extract the text? In this example both files are text based although only the first file is displayed.

  • Insert inbound email as an attachment in a new email

    Sorry experts. I think this question is more apropriate in the ABAP forum, but since I'm doing this from a BSP application, and there are no answers from there I'll check with the experts here.
    I need to send in a reply of an email, the source email as an attachment (even if it have attachments included).
    At outlook, we can save an email as a .msg file to the hard disk, and the attach it in a new email.
    In a bsp application (such as IC Webclient), do you think it is possible to do this automatically?
    I can get all the information relative to an inbound email (by knowing it's SOODK id), by doing the following line codes.
    DATA: LV_MAIL_DATA TYPE REF TO CL_CRM_EMAIL_DATA.
    DATA: SOME_SOODK TYPE SOODK.
    SOME_SOODK = 'RAW30000000006996'.
    LV_MAIL_DATA = CL_CRM_EMAIL_UTILITY=>GET_MAIL_DATA_FROM_SO( IV_OBJECT_ID = SOME_SOODK ).
    In lv_mail_data, I can see the headers, the TO and FROM email adresses, the body of the email, and it's attachments.
    What I don't know how to do, is to take this email as a whole object, and insert it as an attachment in a new email to be sented.
    Anyone can give a clue?
    Thanks!
    Regards

  • Counting inbound emails (including those automatically deleted using ERMS)

    Hi all,
    I have a requirement to be able to count all inbound emails in SAP CRM (5.0).  This includes all emails that have been automatically deleted using ERMS after the creation of an Interaction Record and Service Ticket.  Can anyone think of an easy way of doing this in SAP CRM?  The Email Workbench and Agent Inbox do not display deleted email Workitems.  The best option that I have been able to come up with is to export the Workitem Selection Report from transaction SWI1 into a spreadsheet and filter column Workitem ID for unique entries.  Does anyone know of a better way of achieving this?
    Thanks,
    Onkar.

    By using POP3, mail is automatically deleted from the server once downloaded by the client without further user intervention (granted, not immediately due to BTYahoos recent non-standard implementation of the POP3 protocol). By contrast, the whole point of IMAP is that mail is left on the server to be available to multiple devices and requires user intervention to delete. Why would a system which is designed to be used for leaving mail on a server be recommmended to someone who wished it to be deleted? If you wish to be pedantic, I agree the OP didn't ask for mail to be automatically deleted, but then nor did he specify immediate deletion either. I interpreted the request as the former, you the latter. Perhaps if we understood the underlying reason why he wished the mail to be deleted in the first place it would help in providing a solution.
    There seems to be a recurring theme on this forum to promote IMAP as a universal panacea to overcome all mail problems which is diverting attention away from fixing BTYahoo's broken POP3 servers which have to my knowledge at least 4 problems. Two are deliberate by BTYahoo, lack of secure login and moving read items to the Trash folder temporarily before deletion. Two are faults which they seem either unable or reluctant to fix, intermittant authentication problems and inabilty to download even modest sized attachments on a slow connection.
    Correction, he did ask them to be deleted automatically.

  • Inbound email update data in R/3 46C?

    I know that Interactive Forms has the possibility of having an inbound email update data in R/3?
    I also know that Interactive Forms is not possible with version 46C.
    Can I get an inbound e-mail to update data in R/3 if I am on version 46C???

    Dear Relaxed Surfer,
    The link you give is great to handle basis setup.
    Is there a place to handle application setup?  Suppose I want an inbound e-mail to execute a transaction, call a BAPI or simply do a direct update to a Zee table.  Is there documentation on this?

  • In Mountain Lion, how to print email message without the attachments.

    Would like to print only the transmittal part of the email without printing the attachments - tried reply or forward and printing, but still wants to print the attached pdfs.  I know someone out there knows how - help please?

    Not sure if this will work, but could try this: select the message then hit Cmd-Shift-S. My thinking is this will save it as a Text Edit document (save it to the Desktop), text only, without the attachment. Then, in Text Edit, select Format>Wrap to Page and print.
    EDIT: just checked this with an email with an attachment. Came up as text only, minus the attachment.

  • Inbound Email configuration - SAP CRM with MS Exchange Server

    Dear Pundits,
    We are implementing SAP CRM and one of the requirement is to configure the Inbound email functionality.
    As of now, we have successfully configured the outbound mail functionality.
    The inbound email functionality to a Single client:
    Our MS Exchange Server Domain is ITAstute.com.
    Where as, on the CRM system, under SCOT transaction --> Settings --> Default Domain, we have entered the Domain name as
    crm-dev.itastute.com
    We are planning to receive emails for different email id's like service, complaints, and so on into our SAP system.
    How will the exchange server can direct the mails from above external emails from domail itastute.com to onto CRM server domain crm-dev.itastute.com????
    Thank you,
    Nikee

    Then you need to define the routing rule in the exchange server.
    Exchange server config is outside the SAP scope and you should contact your exchange admin to get it done.
    Also they might force you to use the port 25 if you have any policy such in your company.
    We used the routing rule from exchange to BIGIP and BIGIP to our SAP server, that way we could use different port.
    You could search in google for the steps and i come accross the link given below.
    See if its useful.
    Link: [exchange rule|http://www.petri.co.il/forums/showthread.php?t=13120]
    Additional input related to the rule.
    you need to define the virtual host if you have more than one client that need to be configured for inbound routing.
    *@crm-dev.itastutecom => * applies to any user in your system and crm-dev.itastutecom should be your virtual host.
    janus.itastute.com => is your hostname and define port number for each client that need to configured.

    Has anyone ever encountered this problem?

    Hi,
    The issue can be an Outlook or Fax mail problem. As this is Exchange server fourm, I suggest you write post in our Outlook community.

  • Create service request with inbound email linked to it

    Hi,
    we are on CRM 7.0 and interaction center agents need to open and read inbound emails in the agent inbox and in some cases manually create Service Requests to which the email should be linked.
    Is there any standard functionality to manually create a new Service Request with the inbound email linked to it or do we have to implement it with custom coding? (we have already used ERMS to automatically create Service Requests linked to emails, but in some scenarios agents need to create manually service requests linked to mails after reading the email in the inbox)
    Thanks,
    laura.

    Hi Joaquin,
    Thank you for answering. I already tried: I select the line with the email in the Inbox, I press Interact (the account is automatically recognized and I am asked to confirm it), I confirm the account and then I navigate to "Service Request" workcenter: a new Service Request is displayed, with the employee responsible and the customer automatically filled. However, I can see no data regarding any attached email in any of the Service Request tabs (even if I save or select "End").
    After your answer, I tried the same procedure with the "Service Ticket" and noticed that the email is correctly displayed as an Interaction Record under the Business Content tab for the Service Ticket: since you confirmed that this should work also for Service Request, I guess there's something wrong in my customizing settings and now I will search for errors.
    Thanks for your help.
    Best regards,
    Laura.

  • Error in workflow mailer configuration - Inbound Email Server

    Hi
    I have Windows 2000 SP4.
    I have installed Oracle Workflow 2.6.3 Standalone as below
    I have installed Oracle Database 10gR1 and Oracle Workflow Server 2.6.3 in same oracle home.
    I have installed Apache HTTP Server 9.0.4 and Workflow Middle Tier in the same oracle home.
    I have finished installation and configuration successfully.
    Now I want to configure mailer parameters.
    I have started Workflow Component Container and Workflow Management Container.
    When I try to enter paramters for mailer I get error in Inbound EMail Account Server Name.
    The error says: Unable to make a network connection.
    I do not want to configure Inbound Mail Server but I need to enter these parameters as they are mandatory.
    I set Inbound Thread Count = 0 so that configuration does not consider parameters for IMAP server.
    My mail server is SMTP server.
    Any idea how to overcome this error and continue with notification mailer configuration?
    Thanks

    You would need to modify all the parameters listed in this script. This script updates each of the mailer and agent listener parameter. You may edit the script to remove all API calls OTHER THAN those for "Workflow Notification Mailer".
    Then update ALL the parameters for "Workflow Notification Mailer" with appropriate values with Inbound Thread Count to 0 and Outbound Thread Count to 1. Inbound Server Name, Account, Inbox, Discard and Processed values can be ignored. Make sure Outbound Server Name is valid SMTP Server name.
    Values like From, HTML Agent should point appropriately as per your env.
    Hope this helps
