Configuring an Email Server Application Connection

When you configure an Email Server application connection, you specify connection attributes to connect to a mail server database or an Outlook PST file.
  1. In the Workflow Manager, click Connections > Application.
    The Application Connection Browser dialog box appears.
  2. Click New.
    The Select Subtype list appears.
  3. Select Email Server Connection from the list.
  4. Click OK.
    The Connection Object Definition dialog box appears.
  5. The following table describes the connection attributes that you can enter:
    Connection Attribute
    Description
    Name
    Application connection name.
    User Name
    Use the following formats to enter user name:
    • IMAP. User name that precedes @ in the email ID.
    • POP3. User name that precedes @ in the email ID.
    • MAPI. User name in the username@domainname format.

    Server Name
    Name of the mail server you want to connect to.

    For example, \\ps3464\\Outlook\\Outlook.pst if the PST file is on another machine or C:\\Outlook\\Outlook.pst if the PST file is on the machine where the PowerCenter Integration Service runs.
    The PST file must be accessible from the machine where the PowerCenter Integration Service is running.
    By default, the PowerCenter Integration Service establishes connection with the PST file specified in the PST File name attribute. If you do not provide the PST file name, the PowerCenter Integration Service establishes connection with the mail server specified in the Server Name attribute.
