According to the workflow administrator's guide documentation, it is possible to create a workflow tag using the action of "UNDELVRD". However in Release 11i and Release 12.x instances only "Error", "Ignore", and "Unavailable" are in the drop-down list of actions.
The Workflow Administrator's Guide lists the following:
This page lets you enter patterns of text found in unusual messages and the status you
want to assign to an inbound message if it contains any of those patterns. For example,
unusual messages include bounced or returned messages and auto-reply messages such
as those sent by vacation daemons, mass mailing lists, and so on. Since different mail
systems vary in how they identify bounced, undeliverable, or otherwise invalid
messages, you can use notification mailer tags to specify how your mail system
identifies those stray messages and how you want the notification mailer to handle
those messages should it come across them.
Oracle Workflow provides several predefined tags for text commonly found in
undeliverable or auto-reply messages. For each tag, the list displays the pattern, which
is the string of text to look for in the From line, Subject line, or body of the message, and
the action, which is the mail status to assign to the message if that pattern is found. The
notification mailer handles messages according to these mail status values, as follows:
• UNDELVRD - Moves the message to the discard folder and updates the
notification's mail status to FAILED. Additionally, the notification preference of the
recipient of the notification is updated to DISABLED. No error process is initiated
for this notification activity. However, after correcting the issues that prevented the
e-mail from being sent, you can reset the user's notification preference and then run
the Resend Failed/Error Workflow Notifications program to re-enqueue failed
notifications on the notification mailer's outbound queue. See: Handling Mailer
Errors, page 2-75.
• Unavailable - Moves the message to the discard folder and continues waiting for a
reply to the notification since the notification's status is still OPEN, but its mail
status is updated to UNAVAIL. This status is purely informative, as no further
processing occurs with this notification.
• Ignore - Moves the message to the discard folder and continues waiting for a valid
reply to the open notification. The notification's status is still OPEN and its mail
status is still SENT.
