By: priyadharshini Tue, 25 Jan 2011 11:10:58 +0000 hi,
i need to pass the From account name in the Email activity from the payload. i.e, the from address of the email must be set dynamically from the payload. is that possible?
currently, though the From Address is sent from payload to the notification wsdl, the email is delivered with the default From account name settings..
can you please share your input to this problem?

By: Tim Tue, 14 Dec 2010 19:14:20 +0000 Hi Lucas,
Here are the steps I went through to get this working in on linux:
1. Get gmail certificates (see also :
openssl s_client -connect > smtp.cert
openssl s_client -connect > imap.cert
2. Edit the smtp.cert & imap.cert, remove everything except the :
Note: you need to keep the BEGIN CERTIFICATE & END CERTIFICATE lines in the file.
3. Import the certificates into a new trust store:
keytool -import -alias -keystore trusted-certificates.jks -file imap.cert
keytool -import -alias -keystore trusted-certificates.jks -file smtp.cert
You will be prompted to enter a password.
4. Edit, replace the existing property setting with “<path>/trusted-certificates.jks<password you used>”
5. Restart.
Hope this helps,

By: Lucas Jellema Wed, 06 Jan 2010 08:30:36 +0000 Apparently some changes in either GMail or in FMW 11gPS1 now force us to have the GMail SSL certificates loaded in our local JVMs keystore.


Instructions on how to add certificate to key store are here: However, how to retrieve those certificates is not entirely clear to me yet. So I do not have it working anymore – sending notifications via GMail!
