As its mentioned in user guide that Exception and Try/ Catch can use to send emails but I am not sure does I have to use mail connector for that or they are self sufficient to complete the activity
If we want to send alerts/notifications to some other users/email ids, we could use the mail connector because we could not add the other users in the email alerts section. In order to add the other users in the set up, we have to make use of the email distribution list concept. Using email distribution lists in an email alert .
In Setup, Email Alerts, you can add your account to various levels of errors. In my case, I added mine to Log Level: WARNING, Event type: ALL. So, for example, if there was a Process Exception (caused by Exception shape, Process error, or say, my Production Atom was offline), then, the Boomi platform would send an email to me about the error. (they are batched up and sent, so delivery is somewhat delayed).
