The party determination when the Email Activity is created was improved in 1802.
The error that is coming up on the UI is showing the data inconsistency present in the system.

This is happening because there is a Contact in the system, which has the E-Mail address of the E-Mail Channel maintained.
Ideally, this is supposed to be just a channel ID, which in turn will be present in one dummy customer.
There should not be any contact with the same E-mail ID.

The Sender is passed for the E-Mail activity creation with the corresponding E-Mail address. This is resulting in the determination of multiple contacts as there are multiple contacts with the respective E-Mail ID's.


The E-Mail address that is maintained in the E-Mail channel needs to be removed from the Contact.
