Email user matching

When the instance receives an email message, the system searches for an existing user record with the same email address as the sender.

Note: This functionality requires that you activate the Email Automatic User Creation plugin.

Inbound Email Action scripts no longer support the gs.createUser() method. Use either the automatically-generated email variables or the gs.GetUserID() method instead.
