Hi All,

I am very new to ABAP and need a little help if you do not mind!

When we send an external email using SO_DOCUMENT_SEND_API1 the user opens Outlook and see the importance notice as an exclamation icon. We would like to have the importance (priority) set the importance (priority) dynamically.

Any ideas?

Thank you

      Thank you for your input; however, I think I have not asked the question correctly. I tried setting the priority to 1, 5, and then finally 8 and the priority/Importance icon in Microsoft Outlook did not change. It consistantely stayed at the exlamation icon.


      I have an ABAP batch program that sends internal SAP email and an external email notification. How can I have the email change the importance icon to something other than the exlamation icon ⚠️ in Outlook.

      Thanks again for your support,
