An Inbound E-Mail received for which the Customer is made Obsolete after a Ticket was created through a first customer-contact, will, depending on the scenario, still be added to the existing Ticket.
Reproducing the Issue
Prerequisite: E-Mail Channels of the type B2B (business to business) ABC (ABC represents the channel name) and B2C (business to customer) DEF were created and successfully set up for Ticket creation in the system.
- A Customer C1 sends an e-mail to channel ABC (or DEF respectively).
- In the corresponding system, a Ticket T1 is created and C1 receives an acknowledgment e-mail in their inbox.
- A system user now sets C1 as Obsolete.
- C1 responds to the acknowledgment-mail by sending a reply.
Result: Despite C1 being set as Obsolete the e-mail is added to T1 instead of it landing in the Unassociated E-Mails view.
Use case I) - B2B Channel
Step 1: Customer B sends an e-mail to B2B channel.
Step 2: The inbound e-mail creates a Ticket - 1 for customer B.
Step 3: Reply/email is sent from C4C -> Customer B gets the e-mail with the ticket reference - 1 in their Inbox.
Step 4: Inside C4C, customer B is made Obsolete.
Step 4: Customer B replies to Ticket 1 from their inbox (referred in step 3).
Result: The customer's e-mail threads to the Ticket - 1.
Use case II) - B2C channel
Step 1: Customer C sends an e-mail to B2C channel.
Step 2: The inbound e-mail creates a Ticket - 2 for customer C.
Step 3: A reply/e-mail is sent from C4C -> Customer C gets an e-mail with the Ticket reference - 2 in their Inbox.
Step 4: Inside C4C, customer C is made Obsolete.
Step 4: Customer C replies to Ticket 2 from their inbox (referred in step 3).
Result: The customer's e-mail threads to Ticket - 2.
Use case III) - B2B Channel - Obsolete Customer sends new e-mail to C4C B2B Channel
Step 1: Customer D is set as Obsolete.
Step 2: After being made obsolete, Customer D sends an inbound e-mail to the B2B Channel.
Result: The e-mail ends up in the Unassociated E-mails with following reason: Account made Obsolete.
Use Case IV) - B2C Channel - Obsolete (Individual) Customer sends a new e-mail from their e-mail address to B2C
Step 1: Customer E is set as Obsolete. Their e-mail address is E_address@example.com.
Step 2: A new e-mail is sent from E_address@example.com to B2C channel.
Result: A new ticket is created for a New customer with the e-mail address: email address E_address@example.com.
This is the expected system behaviour.
