Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open app "Create sales order" to create a sales order.
  2. Go to menu "More" -> "Extras" -> "Output" -> "Header" -> "Edit".

Check the settings accordingly.


Firstly go to app "Output parameter determination". In the determination step "Email Recipient". See if any recipient email address is maintained here. This has highest priority.

Secondly if DEFAULT email address is maintained in the first step, the system will read the recipent email from the relevant business partner.

If the recipient is a customer, go to app "Maintain business partner". Make sure an email is maintained on tab "Address".
