Mail Server Settings in GP 2013

In Dynamics GP 2013, there is a new option to select the Email server type either to MAPI or Exchange.
Set Email Preferences in GP2013.
Go to Tools àSetup àSystem àSystem Preferences to open System Preferences screen in GP where one can set the email preferences.

There are 2 server types under Email preferences

  • MAPI
  • Exchange

MAPI– This option uses the Microsoft Outlook profile of the user logged onto the machine and only works if the 32-bit version of Microsoft Outlook is installed.  A Microsoft Outlook profile must be setup and functional.  This option is similar to how email integration worked in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010.

Exchange – This option requires use of the Microsoft Exchange Auto Discover Service, which must be operational on the local network.  If you have the 64-bit version of Microsoft Office installed, one must use this option and have the Microsoft Exchange Auto Discover Service enabled in order to email documents from within Microsoft Dynamics GP.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 allows one to email documents to customers from the Sales Series and vendors from the Purchasing Series.  One will access the Email Settings windows from the ToolsSetup menus for either the Sales or Purchasing Series.  If one can select the Exchange Server Type on your email configuration, the system will first prompt you to enter an email address and password in order to connect to the Exchange Server prior to displaying the Email Setup window for the series.

In previous Dynamics GP versions, Microsoft Outlook connector on the user home page was turned on by default.  But in GP2013, Microsoft Outlook Inbox is removed from Microsoft Dynamics GP.

Hope this helps!!!
