Configuring EML Transfer Encoding

Configuring the Distribution Service

In some instances, you might want to output email notifications to EML files to be processed by a third-party mail application. When this method for distributing notifications is necessary, complete the following steps:

Note:

EML files can also be used in testing.

  1. Create a directory to store the EML files. This directory should be accessible locally, in a mapped drive or through an UNC path to a shared directory. The path name must be fully qualified. It must start with \\Name, where Name is the name of the machine name, or X:\, where X is any drive letter.
  2. From the Distribution Service Settings dialog box, select an encoding option from the EML transfer encoding drop-down list.
  3. Select from either ServenBit or EightBit.
  4. Click OK to save the option.
