Reproducing the Issue

  1. Trigger an e-mail to a User eg. Status triggered E-mail
  2. The e-mail arrives in a different locale to the user
  3. In the UDF (User Data file), the Locale is configured as expected for that user 


Multiple users are sharing the same e-mail address in the UDF. As a result the locale selects the default language in 'Manage Recruiting Languages'



Ensure all users have a unique e-mail address in the UDF. Please note that it does not take into account case sensitivity, i.e. and SAP.TEST@TEST.COM would be considered by the system as the same email address.
