In a testing environment, you can configure the Distribution Service to write emails to a file in order to test messages without actually sending them to recipients.
Testing should be performed in a separate testing environment. It is not recommended to use test mode in an environment with live data.
To configure test mode:
- Open the OnBase Configuration module.
From the Utils menu, select the Distribution Service Settings option. The Distribution Service Settings dialog box is displayed.
Click the Email Server Settings button. The Mail Server Settings dialog box is displayed.
- In the Address field, enter an address to a valid UNC path.
- Click Save.
With test mode enabled, messages are saved in EML format to the specified location. These messages can be viewed, verified, and deleted as necessary.
