Troubleshoot With SPAM (At Your Own Risk)

DO AT YOUR OWN RISK

Before doing Troubleshooting with SPAM queue please take Full Backup of your
system so at least you can rollback up to same scenario.
1) If your Spam queue Hangs at any point after DDIC_IMPORT phase then its not
possible to reset it using SPAM or any other transaction. So in this case you may
be need to reset queue manually using some commands.(DON’T DO THIS)
2) Table PAT01 clear the Support Package with error delete from sapr3.pat01 where
patch = ''; (in our case SAPKA70013)
3) commit;
4) Table PAT03 changed the status of '?' or 'I' to 'N' “update sapr3.pat03 set
status='N' where status = '?' and patch = ''; “
5) commit;
6) With user adm go to Prompt-DOS
7) tp showbuffer pf=c:\usr\sap\trans\bin\TP_DOMAIN_.PFL
8) tp delfrombuffer SID pf=c:\usr\sap\trans\bin\TP_DOMAIN_.PFL
9) After this you can check your SPAM queue it should be empty.
10) In case you face problems like “bupa_inbound” undefined that means your system
is inconsistent for that you can use
11) SE18 and then enter SPRX_PROXY_ACTIVATION click change and then
activate it.
12) After that system can be in consistent state but its not guaranteed as you manually
remove SPAM queue and only half he changes are there in System .So as soon as
you are able to find the error ,correct it and reimport the same SP to make your
system consistent.
13) I am still saying ‘DON’T DO THIS’ SAP WILL NEVER HELP YOU IN THIS
SCENARIO.
DO AT YOUR OWN RISK

Hello, I've come across your blog and I hope you can assist me in my query.

I've been asked to do a high level investigation to find out if SAP perform sending BULK EMAILS (i.e. send 6000 plus emails with attachments)

How BULK email works:

1. User uploads the list of email ids into the system
2. User uploads the message (HTML/Text etc with attachments files like MS-Word document)
3. SAP to perform a SPAM analysis to ensure that the company sending out the Bulk emails is not blocked as a spammer
4. SAP to generate the following reports:

a) confirmation of mails sent

b) report about mails bounced (this will give the company an idea of which email addresses are valid or not)


Can you guide me if SAP can perform the above steps? If so, then my questions are:

Q1: Which modules / components of SAP can do this?

Q2: Can SAP perform SPAM checks?

(this is to ensure that our company doesnot get blocked by the Telecom service provider)


Thanks. You can reply via email as well at saba@ymail.com.
