Hi Experts ,
I have been trying to configure sending the PO by mail to vendors. I have defined an output type for PO and assigned "Email " output channel
then defined rule for determination

then assigned form template

In Define Business Rules for output determination node i have maintained the below






However when i create a new PO no output is determined Although it is automatically determined in case of Print channel , so did i miss any thing ?
Also what is the use of Business Partner ID and Email URI in step 5 in Business rule determination ?

Dear Andy,
Thanks for your help but this blog describes the old way ( NAST ) , In S/4 Hana there is a new output management tool called BRF+ and i am trying to send an email using this tool.
Thanks Again for your respond.


For your information, the old way (NAST) is also running on S/4 Hana.


Dear Andy,
I have tried and it worked fine, however i want to send RFQ by mail too and it isn't available by NAST, Am i right ?
Thanks for your help


You can send RFQ by mail with NAST method. Open tcode NACE for config.


Is there a node to deactivate or active new output management for RFQ like that for PO ?

What does the docu (icon in front of this node) say?

I am not yet on S4 but I think this node is the general activation/deactivation for purchasing documents, no matter if PO or RFQ or contract.

But I also think that S4 supports email output otherwise it would not make much sense to switch to a new output management (which is default anyway)

There is even a blog related to S4/HANA which has an example for email processing.


Dear Jürgen ,
this is what the document says

I have read the blog you mentioned it was very helpful specially the comments in understanding the new output management and i was able to print the PO using it however it didn't work for email channel with me and yes it is supported for sure but i think i am missing something in the "Define Business Rules for output determination" node.

Best Regards

Because you can send PO by email through NAST method, then you can send RFQ by email through NAST method too.

Please config your output type using tcode NACE. For config output type for RFQ, you can refer output type for PO as example (add medium "5 - External Send" on processing routines in output type NEU for RFQ).


Dear Andy ,

I will try to configure it and i will get back to you.

Best Regards

In Email Settings, enter any valid email address in "EMAIL_FROM".
