We have a problem with SMTP mail and the ECC SAP system. We have noticed this where mail is leaving the system when it has been
generated by a batch job and the spool output is sent to a shared distribution group. The SAP log suggests that SAP has indeed sent the emails.
However the logs on the SMTP gateway say the emails were not correctly received.
The issue occurs when...
A batch job runs a program that creates a spool. The batch job is configured to send to a distribution group.
The distribution group contains many SMTP email addresses.
(If the batch job is configured with a single SMTP address without using a distribution list then it works fine.)
What should happen is that the spool is converted to a txt file and emailed to all the SMTP addresses in the distribution list.
