SharePoint Document Libraries not receiving email

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I am having an issue with my document libraries receiving incoming emails.  Talking to our Exchange guy, the emails make it through Exchange and appear to be delivered.  I can see the email going into the drop folder in the mailroot.  It leaves the folder, but is never delivered to the document library.  Does anyone know what my next step should be?

Let me know if you need more info.  I'm at a loss.

Working with SharePoint document libraries

Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.

By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page.

SharePoint Document Libraries and Horrors Oh My

I thought I would capture a few ideas around document libraries and share with the rest of the class. These are not "best practices" as I don't want to sound too preachy so let's call them "pretty good practices that you might want to consider if you have some time" (which is far too long for a blog title, hence the one I came up with is going to have to do). SharePoint Fight Club The first rule of SharePoint. I want you to repeat after me. "SharePoint Document Libraries are not file shares." Good. Now say it again. Good. Remember this, above all other things we're going to talk about here, and you'll be golden. Document Libraries are not File Shares I have to repeat this here because it is key. If your users are asking you to put a file share into SharePoint then you need to beat them upside the head when they talk about "replicating the folder structure" or "like for like" or "make it just like *that* (and points to file share)". If you really must make some kind of analogy and your audience knows something about databases (even Access), rather than saying document libraries are like file shares say "document libraries are like databases". While SharePoint sits on top of a database it's kind of irrelevant what the backing store is (side note, Dear Microsoft, please make a pluggable store for SharePoint in the next version) a list or document library is pretty

SharePoint 3.0 document libary imcoming email settings

I am able to create incoming email settings on the central admin page. The problem is when I go into the site I cannot create incoming email settings.

SharePoint Users Behind a Forefront TMG Server Cannot Access Explorer View in Document Libraries

SharePoint Feature / Solution - Unassociate/Associate existing document libraries to a DLL



Previously we have a document library feature that contains a DLL.

Over time we have created document libraries using this feature, so document libraries created were associated to the DLL.

Now we need to change the solution to NOT include the DLL, but we found out that even though we retract / redeployed the solution without the DLL, those document libraries that were created is still calling/associated with the DLL.

Is there a way to unassociate/associate back the document library to the DLL?

Thank you for any help! :)




How to enable Word 2010 to save to one of the document libraries on a newly installed Sharepoint Ser



I have a newly installed Sharepoint Server 2010 (say, http://spserver/) somewhere on our LAN on Windows Server 2008 R2. And I am working with Word 2010 on my Windows 7 machine. I have created a Document library somewhere in a subsite of the Sharepoint server (say, http://spserver/subsite/doclibrary)

Now, working with Word 2010 I want to simply save the document that I'm working into that document library Doclibrary. I go to Word 2010 backstage... and can't find anything there.

1) Save As? It only shows my file system...

2) Save & Send? I see there Save to Sharepoint. But Browse for Location button gives me nothing. If I press Save As here, I just get my file system again.

What should I configure on Sharepoint server or in my machine, so that I can save to my doclibrary with as few clicks as possible, just like I always did with my local file system.

Migrating 3rd Party document Libraries to SharePoint 2010



I'm looking at migrating a 3rd party document library to SharePoint 2010. After reviewing the SDK, I have some questions.

First, would it be more feasible to use the Content Migration Library or the Document Management Library to perform the migration?

Second, regrading the creation of the .CMP file. I understand the .CMP file is simply a CAB file with relevant XML files stored inside. I guess my question is, how should I procuce this .CMP file? Should I use the CAB SDK or is there an alternative SDK I should be using? And what compression should I be using etc.

I appreciate and feedback on this issue.



Sending Email alerts before expire date on document (using Sharepoint Designer)


I need to trigger an email alert 2 weeks before the expire date on document (document library).


The document library has a List/Site Column for an Expiry date.

I need to clarify the following:


I assume it is possible to create a CALCULATED field (Alert Date) of DATE (assigned to List/Site Column) that would

have a formula of: Expiry date - 14 days. 


Is it possible to trigger a workflow (created in Sharepoint Designer) AFTER the Alert + Expiry dates have been set

and ONLY if the Alert Date  = Todays Date? 


Is it possible to add a variable in the workflow of type DATE that MAPPED to the current item 'UPLOADED' to the

Document Library and was calculated against the number of days to be subtracted?


If this was possible could it be bound to the PAUSE UNTIL DATE action?


The Workflow would only then be triggered (p

sharepoint 2010 Document Library - Email as attachment


I am disappointed to see that SharePoint 2010 does not appear to offer the ability to send a document from a document library as an attachment.  We use Sharepoint to control our documents as such we forbid, by policy, storing local copies of documents as there is no way to ensure that they are the current version (cached local kept in sync with a sharepoint library is allowed).  When Sales, Marketing, Customer Service wants to send a set of documents to a customer, they currently copy all the documents they need to a temp folder on their computer, attach all the documents from the folder to an email, then delete the temporary folder.  

I was hoping with all the improved integration, that the library and more valuable would be a view of the library (as it is filtered and sorted) would be accessible to use when selecting attachments. Or the reverse - select a set of documents from a library view and choose email as attachment.    

 The closest options I have come up with is to open the library in explorer which allows dragging and dropping the documents into the email, but there does not appear to be a way to search or filter the items in the explorer view of the library. 

Help me out, is there a better way to do this?  Can Sharepoint workspace help me here?   This is a common complaint at my o
