I have been looking to implement Connections mail for a while for one of my customers, after finally sorting out some SSO issues we had been seeing I was ready to deploy into their DEV/TEST environment. No problem I thought – Connections mail is a very simple install a couple of config files and a quick wsadmin command to get the help to work.
Once I had deployed I was seeing the strangest issues –
Contact your system administrator:
Missing element with class=”os-site-mail-notify”
After spending a few hours trying to work out what the issue was, sanity checking myself in the Connections skype chat and much google-ing – I threw in the towel and opened a PMR. I did my usual of explaining the situation, listing OS and level, Connections versions and fixes etc and sending in a screen shot, Log files and the Connections mail config file – a couple of hours later I had a response.
It appears that something has changed between V4 and V4.5 of connections – I had customisations brought over from V4 and copied the header.jsp as it looked on first glance that there was no changes between 4 & 4.5
In Version 4.5 the span for the mail notify icons is :
Previously it was:
Changing this span from id to class resolved my issue.
So the moral of the story is even if you think nothing has changed – it most likely has
Big thanks to Jonathan P. Dormady Staff Software Engineer in Connections Support for finding me a solution so quickly
