About this task
By default, automatic notifications are sent from a generic email address, such as email@example.com. If Connections is configured so that email addresses are not displayed, you can set a global sender email address for all notification templates, as described in the topic Defining a valid global sender email address
. If email addresses are displayed, the global sender is ignored. In either case, you should add a specific administrator email address that has access rights to send mail for several notification templates that are used in the workflows for managing content that is flagged as inappropriate. Some of the messages sent automatically instruct the recipient that they can respond to the administrative user email address from which the notification was sent. If you do not edit the default email address, the recipient gets a delivery failure notification when they try to respond to the automatic email.
To specify an administrator email address for managing flagged content, complete the following steps:
- Check out the notification-config.xml file using the following command:
is a temporary directory and cell_name
is the WebSphere
® Application Server cell where you installed Blogs.
- From the temporary directory to which you checked out the notification-config.xml file, open it in a text editor.
- Search for the <source name="Blogs" string to find the section that defines the notification settings for the Blogs application.
- To configure an administrative email address for handling flagged content in a blog, add or change the value of the sender attribute to a legitimate email address in the <type> elements that have the following name attribute values:
Save and close the notification-config.xml file.
Check in the configuration files using the following command:
<type name="notifyFlagged" notificationType="MODERATION">
<channel name="email" enabled="true">
<channel name="event" enabled="true">
Restart the Blogs server for the changes to take effect.
