E-Mail Users and E-Mail Contacts

Mail-enabled recipients obtain data about users from outside the Microsoft Exchange organization. There is at least one email address defined for a mail recipient. Notification is automatically forwarded to this email address. You can manage mail-enabled Active Directory user accounts (e-mail users) and mail-enabled Active Directory contacts (e-mail contacts) in One Identity Manager.

Entering Master Data for E-Mail Users

Enter e-mail users for Active Directory user accounts. Active Directory user accounts can either have a mailbox or be mail-enabled. If a user account already has a mailbox, you must delete the mailbox before you set up an e-mail user for this user account.

  • In this case, some of the master data described in the following is mapped through templates from employee master data.
