Archiving SOST email


Is there anyway to archive external emails? We did some custom changes to trigger external emails from sales order. The program RSBCS_REORG deletes the emails periodically which the customer doesn't want. Is there any way by which we can archive the external mails? I checked with SOY8 but it does not work for EXT type. Have anyone has any solution for this?

    Hi Saswata Dey!

    Dcouments of type EXT can not be archived. These are stored through KPRO, where it can be set that these documents should be stored in an external content server (instead of standard delivered database table SOFFCONT1). If EXT documents are stored in external content server, there is no need for archiving. For more info read SAP Note 904711 and KBA 1634908.

    The BCS data (especially attachments) are stored in SOFFCONT1 table which is of doc category SOFFDB. SAP has no archiving concept for these types of attachments so the only way to reduce the load in the database is relocate them to the external server using the relocation program RSIRPIRL.

    For this you will need to define a new document category for SOFFPHIO type (T-code SKPR08) and reroute them to the external location.
