Introduction

Out of box, when an incoming email is received by SDM, SDM will need to match the incoming email address with

some contact's email address in SDM repository to decide if the operation is allowed. However, sometimes the incoming

email does not come from some SDM contact email like an analyst manually notifies someone or the notification email

is forwarded to someone who is not in SDM contact repository and in this case, the replied email still should update the

related ticket. This tech doc explains how this feature can be done.
