Prerequisites

  • Genesys Administrator 8.0.2 or higher, configured to show Advanced View.
  • A working knowledge of Genesys Administrator 8.
  • A Workspace Application object exists in the Configuration Database.
  • Workspace can handle email interactions.
Start The list of "From" e-mail addresses that can be used in outbound e-mails can be populated from two mutually exclusive sources, based on options that you configure:
  • E-Mail Server POP addresses. Configure the email.from-addresses option with the value $EMAILSERVER$.
