In a Mail Access Point, I want to rename the incoming files to filename containing the SmartName [Access Point E-mail Sender], but this is not applied, the input filename is always kept.
In the Mail Access Point, in the field "Rename Files to", you specified a name containing the SmartName [Access Point E-mail Sender], but the output file is still the original input file name. The renaming did not happen.
When looking in Automation Engine's BGMD.log (or Diagnostics), you can read why this happens:
The value of this SmartName has a syntax "Lastname, Firstname" <Firstname.Lastname@domain.extension>
And because the characters ", < and > are not supported in (Windows) file names, the file cannot be renamed using this value.
As a solution, you can extract the actual mail address from the [Access Point E-mail Sender] SmartName in a String Extract SmartName, and use that SmartName in the Mail Access Point. Below screenshots shows how:
When making the String Extract SmartName, make sure to select 'Scope = Access Points'. This is needed to make those SmartNames become available in Access Points!
