RAM: Provide a mechanism to clear queued emails (so that users are not spammed once an SMTP server is connected)
My client, British Telecommunications is currently piloting IBM Rational Asset Manager to manage over 40,000 interfaces within their organization.
As part of the pilot they are bulk uploading 200,000 assets into RAM (including approvers etc). At the time they did not have an SMTP server available. Once they connected RAM to the SMTP server 1000's of emails were sent out to the client. Some clients thought that they were being attacked in a denial of service attack. I have also seen this issue at antother client site.
The client would like an enhancement to RAM so that they can select a button (or similar, perhaps on the configuration page) called "Clear Queued Emails".
This button would then clear any emails due to be sent out, so that when the SMTP server was reconnected, RAM would not send out 1000's of emails.
