HRMS application  EBS SUSE linux 10 sp3 database  I have an issue where in i need to configure Workflow Mailer for a new  Instance. I am able to work with the SMTP but there is no IMAP configured since  Microsoft Exchange is being used.  MY SA does not want to turn on the IMAP service on the exchange server since we do not use inbound processing.  fields under Inbound EMail Account are mandatory.  How do we handle this issue?  Help is appreciated.

Pl follow the steps in this MOS Doc  How To Configure The Workflow Java Mailer Without An IMAP Account (Assumes No Inbound Processing) [ID 268274.1]	  HTH Srini
