Goto NACE .

u2022 Then select Output Type NEU and click on processing routines .

u2022 In that you have to add a new entry - medium 5 .

u2022 Then you need to assign a program, form routine and form.

u2022 You can use the standard program i.e. SAPFM06P, FORM routine is always ENTRY_NEU and standard MEDRUCK.

u2022 Then in PARTNER FUNCTION you need to add a new entry : medium - 5 and function - VN .

u2022 For subject of the mail goto Mail Title and Texts. In title give PO No. &EKKO-EBELN& .

u2022 Under General data -> Replacement of text symbols give programm as SAPMM06E and Form Routine as TEXT_SYMBOL_REPLACE .

u2022 Now the subject will be PO No. 1800004202.

u2022 You need to maintain your email id in tcode SU01 and also the vendor's email id.

u2022 Now while creating a new purchase order , change the medium to External Send .
