I was wondering if you could write an sandbox solution using the SPEmailEventReciever class. In the SharePoint SDK documentation it says that the SPEmailEventREciever is not avaliable for use with a sandbox solution, but I found in another piece of document SharePoint that list all class avaliable for sandbox solutions it shows that the SPEmailEventReciever is avalaible for use. Help?

SPEmailEventReciever class http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.sharepoint.spemaileventreceiver.aspx#2

Microsoft.SharePoint.dll APIs That Are Available from Sandboxed Solutions http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee537860.aspx#BKMK_AvailClasses

No it is not unfortunately, again according to MSDN documentation!

Screen capture MSDN

Even tried - it doesn't get accessible

That's what I thought, but the second link tells me that the class is accepted for sandbox solutions. msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/… –  Brandon Michael Hunter Sep 7 '12 at 16:19
..but is also states that several members might be unavailable and you should check, also because certain members in this assembly behave differently than members in other assemblies of sharepoint –  C. Marius - MVP Sep 7 '12 at 16:23
