How To Configure Notification Failure Messages For Mailing Lists (Doc ID 1476995.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 15, 2022

Oracle Communications Messaging Server - Version 6.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Notification failure messages for group mails are being sent to all members of the group.

For example, there was a user in the mail group who had an Over Quota status.  The mail delivery failure notification was sent to the original sender saying this is due to user over quota problem of that specific user.

   Your message cannot be delivered to the following recipients:

    Recipient address:
    Original address:
     Reason: Over quota

But, this same notification message was also sent to all other group members.

How can we configure this so that not all group members receive this notification?  Preferably, the notification should only be sent back to the original sender.
