    Groups denotes the classification of your support team so that all the incoming requests can be categorized and equally distributed amongst the support reps. Say, the support reps under the Warranty Group handle requests relating to warranty.


    You can configure the email address of the respective Groups, which routes the service request mails to the particular group. For example, if the group 'Warranty' is configured with the mail address '' the request sent to this particular address will automatically get associated with the group 'Warranty'. While replying the request assigned to the group, the From Address will be the Reply to Address of that group.


    If email address is not configured for the groups, the requests will follow the mail configuration settings of the corresponding business units.
