Configure issue priority based on email priority?

Using Jira 6.1 Service Desk. All issues are created via a mail handler. I've noticed that if the email (using Exchange) is flagged High priority, the issue status is set to Blocker as opposed to Major for standard emails. Is this configurable in the UI or hard coded?

The priority is based on the priority of the email in exchange - regular is Major, High is Blocker and Low exchange priority results in Normal priority in Jira



I use JIRA 7.12.3 with JIRA Service Desk 3.15.3. The problem is that SD doesn't recognize email priorities at all - all of the issues are by default 'Medium'.


Is there some kind of setting that I need to turn on for the priorities to be read properly?


Best regs.
