Vendor Contact Person email


Our system is short-dumping when we try to send an email to a contact person maintained in the vendor master. We go into XK02 to change the Vendor master, we go to the Contact person tab and add a contact person.

Then, we go into SO01 and try to compose an email. We enter the contact person's name and SAP Office recognizes the address fine. But, when we send the email, the code abends. Looking at the call stack, it seems as though the system is doing an authority check against a blank customer account group. It's as if SAP is looking up the customer master from KNVK from the Vendor contact person (which is non-existant) and then doing the authority check.

Are vendor contact persons only supposed to be used when the Vendor is also a Customer? Are you able to send an email to Vendor Contact persons? Is there something that needs to be maintained in Central Address Management?

Thanks for any suggestions.
