The Sender Edition is a plug-in application that enables users to compose an email and send the work item to arbitrary recipients. Working as an additional tab in the work item interface the user can enter the recipients, including CC and BCC lists and then email directly the work item information. This is beneficial for users that have an interest in the work item, perhaps need to provide feedback, but are not connected to the project or have access to Rational Team Concert directly. The plugin works with the Rational Team Concert internal mail system. Ordinarily, email notifications within Rational Team Concert are only sent to licensed users. JazzConnect-EMAIL Sender enhances the mail system by allowing emails to be sent to external recipients.
