I am using SharePoint 2013. I have a workflow that is automatically started when something is added to the library. Some things are added to the library via email. I noticed that the things added by email won't have the workflow automatically started. How can i make it so that things added by email ALSO start the workflow? Thanks!

Note: This is a commercial release of SP and the workflow is actually listed as a "SharePoint 2010" workflow.

Edit: I saw How can I make a workflow automatically start when an email is received? but will that work for SP 2013? I am not an sys admin so I can't run that command.

$spWebService = [Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPWebService]::ContentService
$spWebService.DeclarativeWorkflowAutoStartOnEmailEnabled= $true

Checked on SharePoint 2010 & 2013.
