EGW_SAVE_EMAIL_HEADERS and the relation with the business rule
Answer ID 7875   |   Last Review Date 01/14/2019

Why does a business rule with a condition based on message header not fire?


Business rule condition on email header


When you notice an incident that you are certain it should have fired a business rule that has a condition based on the email header, you should always check for the setting EGW_SAVE_EMAIL_HEADERS and see if it is enabled.

When the mentioned configuration setting is disabled the impact on business rules would be:

1. If you do not have a business rule that contains a condition based on the email header and you attempt to create one then the option would not be available => you will not be able to create that condition on a business rule.

2. If you already have a business rule created in this way => meaning that at some point the setting was enabled and afterwards disabled, then the business rule will not fire even if the condition was met.
