Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Service work center.
  2. Go to Unassociated E-mails.
  3. See that e-mail address "ABC" has reason "Multiple matching contacts were found --".


The e-mail address "ABC" is maintained for both an Account and a Contact. That's the reason why the e-mail was sent to Unassociated Emails list.

The system considers both Accounts and Contacts as Business Partners. In case the same e-mail address in maintained in more than one Business Partner, the system behaviour will be inconsistent.


 In order for the ticket to be automatically created, the e-mail address should be maintained under only one Business Partner.
