Message Type Configuration

Use this page to configure the message types for your store. You cannot add new message types to the system or delete existing ones; instead there is a predefined set of message types using the e-mail transport that can be configured.

Message Type
Lists the types of messages available. For example, you may have messages for receiving an order, canceling an order, or general broadcast messages.
Severity Range
Indicates the severity or priority of the message. Currently this field is not used by the Messaging System. The recommended value is 0-0.
Specifies the method in which messages will be transported or communicated message recipients. If the transport method you want is not listed, ensure that the transport has been enabled.
Transport Status
Specifies the status of this transport type: active or inactive. An active status indicates that the transport type is supported.
