2283403 - Missing "original recipient" field in e-mail properties on e-mail notifications


  • All notifications sent from our SuccessFactors environment do not contain the original recipient.
  • This used to be added at notification property as a metadata field "xxx_Original_recipient".
  • As a result, in our test mail box "" we cannot find the e-mail properties detailing to whom the notifications were originally intended.
  • As you know, all notifications from our SF instance are sent to as we configured a unique recipient.


  • Single recipient


  • Some value is missing on the specific mail header configuration

  1. Go into "Provisioning" > "Company Settings" > "Mail Preference" section
  2. Double-check "Single Recipient" feature is enabled and configured.
  3. Update the value for "Custom email header for original recipient(s)" with the header's name provided by customer's admin.
    (There is no constraint on what has to be the header's name as long as it doesn't include blank spaces in it.)
  4. "Save" your changes
