Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Sales campaign workcenter.
  2. Go to the Campaigns view.
  3. Select All and open a Campaign XYZ (XYZ represents the name of the campaign).
  4. Choose the Build facet.
  5. Click Edit.
  6. Select the + icon for Target Group and select the Target Group for the Campaign XYZ.
  7. Select the + icon for Actions and select Send E-Mail.
  8. On the appearing e-mail option, select: Select in order to select an e-mail template.
  9. Click Apply. 


The Business feature DIRECT_EMAIL is not set to scoping status Productive thus the code list value 5 (Direct Mail) is not supported in this system.


The scope setting: Sales Campaign > Campaign Execution: Do you want to execute campaigns by sending e-mails directly to target groups? needs to be activated.

In addition to this, if you want to use the Campaign execution functionality you also have to maintain the domains in the Fine Tune activity: E-mail and Fax Settings.
