Business Objects to use default from email only?


Have a business requirement in 4.2 SP4 to move email delivery from using an old internal open company relay to Office 365. I have the email configured and secured using TLSv1.2 with Stunnel proxy using a valid service email account and password. Email sends fine when the From address matches the authentication address, otherwise we get an SMTP 550 error, basically it does not allow spoofing from email, it forces the from to match the authentication mail.

Problem is in BOBJ this can be overridden and has been. I have some sdk code to update existing schedules and the SMTPfrom=false in the file to disable the from field, but this leaves me with one issue.

Users are authenticated with LDAP and of course their email comes in with attributes. So if an LDAP user schedules a report it will try to send the email as that user and not default thowing the 550 error. If you schedule as admin there is no email so it uses default in JobServer.

I could probably clear the mail attribute from LDAP and update all the user accounts to remove email addresses so it can't resolve it and will then use the JobServer as well, but is there another way to force BOBJ to always send mail from a specific FROM address so I can avoid all the SDK runs and LDAP config changes?
