If necessary, you can define your own rules for recipient number adjustment. For the inbox the rules are valid for the whole client. Whereas, for the outbox, you have to define the rules for each node.


You can specify exceptions for adjustments to the country codes in country exceptions for each destination- and recipient country. This may be required, for example, in border areas.
