Forwarding E-mail Rules

XXX = emailAddress, LastName, Full Name, or "Me"

Default Action: If you forward an email to your public support email address (support@acme.com), you will become the user of the ticket and the technician will be selected via routing rules. For this behavior to work the email subject must have FWD: or FW: (one of the default subject prefixes in most email systems)

Setting the End User on the Ticket: There are two ways to set the end user on the ticket. a.) use the command "cmd user xxx" or b.) the parser can search into the body of the ticket and find the user's email address using the command "cmd finduser". Generally when you forward the email the previous user's email is right below your message you write, embedded into the body of the forwarded email. We can find that email address and make that person the user of the ticket, using the command to tell our parser to search into the ticket for that user's email.

Setting Yourself as the Tech and NOT use Routing: When forwarding, use the command "cmd tech me" on a separate line to tell the parser you should be the tech on the ticket and NOT to using the routing rules to find the tech.
