Monitoring Email With VMP Messages

Vocera Messaging Platform provides features to integrate user email into the Messaging feature. The server monitors the email box and sends a message to the user when new mail is received.

The following services are supported:

The email body is expected to contain an XML document with specific tags used by the VMP Server. Email aliasing and redirection are not necessary, as email messages are sent directly to the monitored mailbox. The XML document contained in the email body defines the recipients for the message. The email header fields are not used to determine the recipients and sender information.

To view an example, see XML Email Template.
