It is possible to send email from within the People Inc. system. This can be done either manually using the screen e-mail feature, or automatically, when a particular condition is met or event arises. For example, it is possible within People Inc time, to configure the system so that it notifies a manager by e-mail when an employee is late.
When e-mail is generated automatically from within People Inc. it is sent directly to an e-mail server. If this fails, the message will then be added to the People Inc. e-mail queue, and the system will then try to resend the message (every few minutes).
The system may fail to send e-mail for a variety of reasons. The most common is when an invalid email address has been used for an employee (e-mail servers are configures to block e-mail sent from addresses they do not recognise). For example, if an employee's work e-mail address is set to a hotmail account, this is unlikely to work.
It is also possible to lose the connection to the e-mail server (during maintenance or an outage on the network for example).
Messages that are not sent successfully will be added to the mail queue. The Mail Queue Manager plug-in enables users to manage the system's queued email messages. Users are able to resend email message or delete the message from the system.
A copy of the Mail Queue Manager plug-in can be downloaded (and installed) free-of-charge from the Resources area of this website. Once downloaded, you are likely to need to ask your IT team to install the plug-in for you. Please note that you will need to register for an account before you can access People Inc. resources.
