Exchange console is Madatory for FIM SSPR email notification RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We  are trying to trigger a mail once user reset his successfully. would like to confirm, is it Mandatory to install the exchange console on FIM server only for email notification in case of successful password reset and OTP on email.

    If exchange console is mandatory to be installed on FIM server, How does FIM interacts with exchange console to trigger a email?

    Thanks

  • Hello Harry,

    Note that it is not required to install the Exchange management console on FIM in order to send notification emails. You should be able to send emails from within your workflow activity by purely editing it and adding a "notification" activity. (Assuming your FIM instance is configured correctly).

    The only reason for ever installing the Exchange Console on a FIM server was related to Exchange 2007 provisioning within older versions of FIM.

  • No, its not mandatory to install Exchange Console, just need to check that FIMService account have a mailbox because every email Notification will send through FimService.

  • Besides the info given: one of the things you can verify: does the FIM Service account has a mailbox? As the FIM Service connect through Exchange Web Services to send mails from within that mailbox.
