Issue/Introduction

After changing the email notification process from SMTP to CSSMTP Alert emails are not being sent.

Cause

The application of ACF2 ptf SO06001 now normalizes data being sent to CEM.  The Alert Policy statements were testing for lower case, but the data is now in caps. Once the policy statements were corrected to test in caps the alert emails via CSSMTP were successfully processed.

Environment

Release : 6.0

Component : CA COMPLIANCE EVENT MANAGER

Resolution

Modifying the alert policy statements to reflect testing for caps and not lower case the emails via CSSMTP were successfully processed.
