Upgrade Issues for Communications Drivers and Profiles

In release 6.x, communications drivers for Siebel Communications Server were called communications adapters.

Existing profiles you created in release 6.x for the Internet SMTP/POP3 Server driver/adapter will still work in the current version, but you can now take advantage of additional supported driver parameters and other driver settings. The From Address driver parameter, which was previously optional for outbound communications, is now required in all cases.

NOTE:  Other drivers/adapters for email and fax from release 6.x (Extended MAPI, Microsoft Exchange Server, and Microsoft SMTP Service) have not been updated by Siebel Systems and are now unsupported. Use the Internet SMTP/POP3 Server driver instead.

For information about supported email servers, see System Requirements and Supported Platforms on Siebel SupportWeb.

For more information, see Configuring Communications Drivers and Profiles.
