Supported scenarios

Sending actionable messages via email is supported in the following scenarios:

  • The recipient must be an individual, not a group.
  • The recipient must be visible in the message. Do not put the recipient in the BCC field.
  • The recipient must have a mailbox on or Exchange Online in Office 365.


  • For Actionable messages, you must create an impersonation account on Microsoft Exchange with impersonation privileges for all the users who wish to create tasks in the application. The impersonation account is used for sending email notification reminders for tasks.
  • Register your service with the actionable email developer dashboard. For more info refer to
  • To receive email notifications in Outlook, when you create a task in Pega Sales Automation, do not set the Notify reminder to none.
