Error description

  • Some companies have tight security policies and have a lot of
    governance set up in Cognos to keep things controlled. They find
    that email could be used as a security hole as confidential
    reports can be sent out to email addresses outside the company.
    Admin wants to control who emails can be sent to and disable the
    option of sending out emails to users outside their company.
