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.

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.
This is not true, you can enable incoming emails on a custom list. Check this post out:
Your custom list basically needs to implement the EmailReceived event handler.
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 :) .
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 ...
This has been a matter discussed in Microsoft's Power Users Community within several threads. A concluding topic, save an email to a document library, sheds some light for how you may actually succeed with your requirement.
As using Flow's functionality to re-attach email's attachments to a new file seemingly just does not work, you can achieve the same ...
Out of the box SharePoint only supports receiving email to specific types of lists and libraries. For instance, you can receive email on an Announcements list. However, you cannot receive email on custom lists.
You could, however, start with an announcements list and add your custom fields as necessary.
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.
Find the one called OWSTIMER.EXE and attach to this.
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 ...
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.
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 ...
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 the ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
I'm guessing that something is going wrong with the AD lookup.
Are there 2 or more AD accounts that have the same email address?
If so, when SharePoint tries to lookup the user in AD by email address, the system will be unsure of which user sent the email. Authentication will fail and the email will never arrive in the document library.
Check out this ...
It sounds like a misconfiguration of your Exchange environment. Are you using forefront protection with your exchange servers? There is a configuration for backscatter filters that will add that PRV= prefix to your sender address.
Because you can send one message and it had it and another that does not, it appears that it is not configured correctly on ...
SPEmailMessage class (object of which is passed to EmailReceived method of your customer email event receiver). It has got Attachments property which contain all the attachments.
public override void EmailReceived(SPList list, SPEmailMessage message, string receiverData)
// Get all the attachments in the root folder
The is no password for list email addresses because they are no associated with AD user accounts. There is also no inbox because these are not Exchange email addresses. List email addresses act more like identifiers for the lists so SharePoint knows where to direct and store incoming email messages.
You should have a connector in Exchange that routes emails ...
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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am not sure about handling the attachment though.
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:
Once you can decode the image (look at the example return data here: https://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 workflow ...
