I have created a simple discussion board list with NO modifications to the fields or views. I have turned on the option to allow new items to be created via email (Allow this list to receive e-mail? = yes). In sharepoint designer I have created
a simple workflow that sets a workflow variable (type string) to 'true'. When I manually create a new discussion board item for this list, the workflow completes successfully; however, when I email in a new discussion board item, the item is created,
but the workflow fails with the "Failed on Start (retrying)" workflow status.
The workflow is set to only fire when new items are created.
