It is now possible to configure Oracle Workflow Notification Mailer with any cloud-based email server that supports SSL/TLS protocols. This includes cloud-based email servers such as Microsoft Office 365 and GMail. You can configure cloud-based SMTP and IMAP email servers to handle inbound and outbound Workflow mailer processing.
Patches are available for E-Business Suite Release 12.1.3 and 12.2. For complete details, see:
The notification mailer configuration wizard within Oracle Applications Manager currently does not support these new security protocol parameters, so you must perform the required configuration steps manually. You should configure outbound processing for your notification mailer first, and then configure inbound processing.
After you configure a notification mailer to use a cloud e-mail server, you must no longer use the notification mailer configuration wizard for that mailer. Instead, continue using the manual configuration scripts to update the mailer configuration as needed.
