On r14.1, if "mail_show_to_cc_list option" is installed, only one email is created and sent out to all recipients. However, sometime the emails are sent out to them separately. How Service Desk Manager determines how many emails are generated and which recipients should be added to a same email?


An Activity Notification email will be separated if Contacts have different Notification Method. You can check what Notification Method is defined to a Contact as shown below.


  1. Log into Service Desk Manager (SDM) using a privilege SDM user account and open 'Administration' tab.

  2. Go to 'Security and Role Management' > 'Contacts'. Search for a Contact you would like to check the Notification Method setting.

  3. Open the Contact and open 'Contact Details' and 'Notification' tab. You will be able to see there is a Method setting for each Notification level.
