SharePoint only shows Incoming Email settings link for OOTB lists of type Announcements, Event, Document Library, Picture Library, XML Form, Discussion Board, Posts. So, if you create a custom list, you need to create a custom email event handler and attach to your list and then Incoming Email settings link will be available. More info: ...

I think you have to re-enable the incoming mail service within the CentralAdmin. At least on initial setup it asks you where you have your drop folder or if SharePoint should automatically detect the local SMTP service.

It might be that you have a nullpointer exception. I would try debugging the receiver, like this: Deploy your solution. Restart the SharePoint Timer Service (From services). In VS click Tools -> Attach to Process. Click Refresh Find the one called OWSTIMER.EXE and attach to this.

This is not true, you can enable incoming emails on a custom list. Check this post out: http://jasear.wordpress.com/2010/11/11/enable-incoming-emails-on-a-custom-sharepoint-list/ Your custom list basically needs to implement the EmailReceived event handler.

Maria, There's no out-of-the-box built-in method for handling email to anonymous lists. The reason is fairly simple; in a custom list, no columns but the Title column exist by default, so there would be no way to take the contents of an incoming email and put into the list. However, that doesn't prevent you from having custom lists with email if you're ...

On a multi-server farm, be sure the "Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Incoming E-Mail" service is running on the same server you're using for the SMTP service, presumably one of your front end servers. Check this in Central Admin-System Settings-Manage Services on Server and cycle through your servers on the top-right. In my case the above mentioned service ...

I had same problem, after all I changed in Configure Incoming E-Mail Settings->Settings mode to -> ADVANCED and specified E-mail drop folder Path :c:\inetpub\mailroot\drop. I hope this answer will help somebody :) .

The guide mentions there being a delay between sending your email and seeing the document show up. I assume it is a timer job that performs the email pickup tasks. Is the SharePoint timer service running? It is called SharePoint 2010 Timer If the service IS running, are you able to see your job running in central admin? No jobs should be running right now ...

Incoming email enables you to send emails that end up in document libraries or other lists. Most of my customers are using this to archive/attach mails belonging to a project or make them searchable. From the TechNet article that explains the planning steps: "The incoming e-mail feature enables teams to store the e-mail that they send to other team members ...

Inbound email allows lists to receive email. This allows a SharePoint list to be configured with its own email address. Incoming emails usually create new list items with the details of the email and body of the email. In addition the original email and attachments can be attached to the list item. This is a good replacement for public folders in ...

Apparently I was incorrectly remembering the process for working with this last night. So here is an update with more detail. I have done this with just note pad. Usually I will take an email out of Outlook or other client and save it as a .txt file so that I can edit it easily. I'll make the adjustments to the to, x-sender, and x-receiver headers and then ...

Couple of things to check: Make sure "Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Incoming E-Mail" timer job is running on the server where SMTP confgiured. From Central admin, Incoming email setting > advance setting, make sure drop folder path added here. Make sure Timer Services having the correct permission on drop folder.

The timer job that picks up mail runs about every 5 minutes or so, so you should not see the email sit there for long. If it does just sit there, and the Timer service is running, then the problem may be that SharePoint does not recognize the TO address as an email-enabled document library. Make sure that you have configured the incoming email domain to ...

The SharePoint Directory Management service connects SharePoint sites to your organization's user directory to provide enhanced e-mail features. The benefit of using this service is that it enables users to create and manage e-mail distribution groups from SharePoint sites. This service also creates contacts in your organization's user directory so people ...

You would need to mail-enable to the list so that it was able to receive email. You will then make sure that AD is able to recognize that list's email address as a valid mail recipient. Then add that email address as a recipient of jithu@abc.com. I am not sure about handling the attachment though. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262947.aspx

Yes you're correct. AD/Exchange isn't a requirement for SharePoint incoming email. As long as you can get the email delivered to the SMTP service running on a SharePoint server. The "only" advantage using AD/Exchange is the option automatic creation of the mailbox when a list is enabled for incomming emails. You can just follow the Simple scdenarion of ...

Looking at the SharePoint help it seems like attachments is out of the box. "If the Post list is configured to receive attachments, you can include an attachment to your blog post by attaching the file to your e-mail message." However I'm not sure why there is no option for the attachements. Does anyone know what is missing.

This is probably a good place to start: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3691877/regex-to-find-in-line-images-in-a-plain-text-email-message Once you can decode the image (look at the example return data here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4332400/python-parsing-emails-with-embedded-images) then it's a matter of simply adding the image as an ...

One approach I would like you to try, Configure Incoming email settings on a SharePoint library. There are many articles in the web, like this which explains the same. Once you start receiving emails directly to SharePoint library, you can use the SPEmailEventReceiver class which fires when an email is received in a list and then you can initiate a ...

All you need to do is set the EmailAlias to the list. You should also check out http://www.novolocus.com/2009/04/15/programmatically-create-and-configure-mail-enabled-lists/ for advanced properties to set.

Incoming email is only available in select lists and libraries. Document, picture, or form library Announcements list Calendar list Discussion board Blog Reference So you'd need to use one of these lists or libraries as your base, remove the default content type and add your own.

Did you assign the correct permissions to the drop folder? Review the requirements in the article underneath - refer to the "Configure permissions to the e-mail drop folder" section: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262947(v=office.14).aspx The WSS_Admin_WPG group had to have full control, the WSS_WPG group has to have Read & Execute, List ...

The incoming email handler for SharePoint has never really been all that great. This is not an uncommon issue and Microsoft doesn't really have any documentation why. The setup requires the IIS 6 SMTP Management stuff to be installed (I would check that first). Secondly, I would walk through all the configuration steps in the TechNet guide to make sure ...

If you have more than one APP Server, check whether the drop folder is on the same server where the timer is running, else you have to share the folder and add the path in Central Admin. Reference : http://bernado-nguyen-hoan.com/2013/06/18/solving-sharepoint-2013-incoming-mails-stuck-in-drop-folder/

If nothing above has helped, then I would check whether your application pool and timer service accounts have permissions to the drop folder. Probably they don't. Some time ago it was the cause of the issue in my case. To configure this permissions do the following: Verify that you have the following administrative credentials: You must be a member of ...

You need to have SMTP server installed on the dev box so that it can receive email from the Lotus Notes box. Also, Lotus Notes box needs to know where to send the mail. So if you have developer@mydevbox.com as the recipient URL, that mydevbox.com needs to resolve to your dev box. I haven't tried this myself, but you might be able to just use HOSTS file on ...

Salve! I wanted to set up email too, for my Sharepoint. In my configuration, I used hMailServer. I realize you didn't mention hMailServer in your post, but I want to use it as an example because it represents a third-party mail server that is not Exchange, and has nothing (as you wished) to do with Active Directory. I am going to assume you have followed ...

SMTP server that accept mail from the Internet must allow anonymous access. See example http://www.oceanapproach.com.au/blog/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=44 Edit: If you can receive email in the document library, please make sure these settings have been done: CA > Operations > Incoming email settings > Accept messages from authenticated users only: No; ...

Edit: the information is good, but i just checked the links and they are dead. Let me know if the basic info is enough to get you started. http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepoint2010setup/thread/0d263b37-f002-4d9b-a7a1-2026f032f1f7/ The second answer by Jasonzh2010 has the best information...
