How do I get rid of this error... I disabled an re-enabled the incoming mail settings in a document library. When type in the alias i get this error: Unable to assign this e-mail address to the list, because the address is in use.

There is another Document Library with the same email address. Even if you have deleted old Document Library it might still be in the Recycle bin somewhere.

I used the email on the wrong document library, but I couldn't move it. I just had to wait a few minutes. – PeterX Jan 22 '14 at 4:27
