Incoming email to SAP inbox


Hello All,

We have our SAP installed on SuSe linux , i have a scenario where i have to send and receive emails from SAP to outlook and vice versa.

These all days i used relay server (postfix) installed on localhost to send messages from SAP to other accounts, this was working fine with out any issues.

Now i also need to receive emails from outlook to my SAP inbox, my mail id which we use is created by using google apps.

  1. According to note 607108 i have updated SMTP node in SCOT and defined all the connection.
  2. I used TLS and defined my username/ password.
  3. After these configuration i am also able to send emails from SAP inbox to other accounts
  4. I have also enabled SAPconnect in SICF and assigned a valid user.
  5. But Still I am unable to receive email to SAP inbox

Here my doubts are.

  • Do i need an exchange server mandatory to receive emails to SAP inbox.
  • Does SAP has its own server to SEND / RECEIVE emails.
  • Do i need to do any setting in SCOT , because i am using as my mail host.

Please advice me in moving forward

Thanks in advance.
