SAP Mail Transactions (T-code)

Updated Jul 21, 2023

SAP Mail Transactions play a crucial role in facilitating internal and external communication within an SAP system. These transactions provide a standardized interface for handling various communication channels, such as FAX, text messages (pager/SMS) and Internet mail (SMTP). With SAP Mail Transactions, users can send and receive messages, notifications, and documents to/from different communication endpoints, including printers and other SAP systems.

In this article, we will explore some of the key SAP Mail Transactions and their functionalities.

SCOT - SAPconnect Administration

T-code SCOT is a SAPconnect management tool that provides a standard interface for external communication that supports sending via telecommunications services such as FAX, text messages (pager/SMS), Internet mail, and X.400, as well as sending to printers and between different SAP systems. SAPconnect establishes a direct connection to the Internet via the SMTP plug-in of the SAP Web Application Server. This allows you to send and receive Internet mail, faxes, and SMS (pager/SMS) directly without having to use additional external communication systems.

SOIN - Incoming Send Jobs (SMTP)

The overview of incoming send requests (t-code SOIN or SOADM Administration Incoming Send Requests) displays all messages received by SAPconnect. Depending on the selected selection criteria, the program displays send requests received by SAPconnect.

It is also possible to display the MIME version in t-code SOIN. This shows how an e-mail is received by the SAP system.

SO50 - Rules for Distributing Incoming E-mail

You can edit the processing of incoming messages yourself. To do this, you must enter an inbound processing rule (transaction SO50) and create a class that has implemented the interface IF_INBOUND_EXIT_BCS (exit for inbound processing).

SODIS - Mandatory Information Management

You want to activate mandatory information management via the system settings. For e-mails and fax documents sent via SAPconnect and the SMTP plugin, the mandatory information for corporate communication is maintained here.

SBCS_REORG - Reorganization of Documents and Send Orders

Reorganization of the document or send order data generated by Business Communication Services (BCS). Depending on the settings under “Reorganization Mode”, the transaction deletes documents with send jobs or documents that do not belong to a send job. Documents or send jobs that are still in use are not deleted.

SBWP - SAP Business Workplace

T-code SBWP is the SAP Business Workplace, where users can manage their workflow tasks and communication-related activities. It serves as a central inbox where users can view and process work items, e-mails, and other notifications.

SOSB - Overview of Send Jobs (Users)

Transaction SOSB can be used for a user to view their own send requests. SAP Document 836463 – T-code SOSB and SOSG: Display and Hide Functions – describes the parameters that can be used to restrict and add certain functions of SOSG to SOSB.

SOSG - Overview of Send Jobs (Groups)

T-code SOSG can be used for a user to select sending requests from specific users or groups. This transaction is similar to SOST, but there are additional authorization checks that are controlled with the authorization object S_OC_SOSG. See SAP Document 603382.

SOSA - SAPconnect Send Jobs

Overview of send jobs that allow you to view and manage all messages sent through SAPconnect.

SOST - SAPconnect Send Jobs

SOSV - SAPconnect Send Jobs
