I am testing Jira service desk and set up our support email address to create tickets. After setup it imported existing emails and created tickets. I did not want these tickets as duplicates on our existing system so I deleted the tickets not knowing it was going to delete the emails off our mail server. How to prevent this please?
Hello @Malcolm Caine
Welcome to the community.
I don't think you can change that aspect of the mail handling.
the process looks at the Deleted flag (for POP) as part of determining if the email should be processed. If it did not then set the Deleted flag for the email it would repeatedly process the email.
If you really must retain a copy of the email, besides the one that is stored in the JIRA database (as per https://support.atlassian.com/jira-service-desk-cloud/docs/how-does-jira-service-desk-process-email-requests/) then you might want to set up a rule on the inbox of the email account to forward the emails to another email account as a backup.
We often have questions from folks using Jira Service Management about the benefits to using Premium. Check out this video to learn how you can unlock even more value in our Premium plan. &nb...
