Apply the Notification Set

 

To apply a Notification Set:

  3. Select the Gateway | Policies menu item.
  4. Locate the Notification Sets and click the list item to launch a list of previously created policies.
  5. Click the New Policy button.

  8. Select which senders and recipients the policy should apply to in the Emails From and Emails To sections.
  9. Complete the Policy Validity section.
  10. Click Save and Exit to apply the policy.

Once the policy is saved, the Notification Set policy will use your branded notifications.

 

Branding with Multiple Notification Sets

 

If there are multiple notifications sets the following rules are applied

  1. The branding of the Notification Set Definition with the most specific Notification Set Policy for the recipient is applied.
  2. If that Notification Set doesn’t hold branding, the branding of the default Notification Set is used.
  3. If both of them don’t hold branding, no branding is applied.
