why email and attachments not separated in email enabled document library?

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#

I noticed that an email-enabled document library sometime separates email and attachments and it ends up with multiple items in the library; sometimes it does and it ends up with one item.

How do we control this or what is the trick here?

This is really frustrating!

Unable to filter the "E-mail To" field in email enabled document library

Hi, We have setup a few email enabled docuement libraries to store emails relating to project work. Is there a way to make the "E-mail To" field in the library be filtered? It is greyed out and doesnt give you the option. The "E-mail From" and "E-mail Subject" are able to have a filter applied to them but for some reason the "E-mail To" field wont let you filter the content. The probelm is that there are over 500 files in the library and the easiest way to find messages is to be able ot filter this column in the library if it is at all possible.

Document Library incoming email attachments not showing To/From information


I have a document library setup to accept incoming emails as attachments.

When I send an email the document library receives it, the only problem is it doesn't show any of the header information such as who sent it, who it was sent to, who was CC'ed.  Is there any way to have this information shown?

Basically what I'm expecting to see before the body message is the From, To and CC.

Any help would be most appreciated.

With incoming email enabled, how can I open an email associated to a library



I have deployed the feature in a advanced scenario.

All work fine, I am able to recieve emails in a library and I can see it in the list with the rest of the documents of the library.

My "problem" is that I can not open it. I can download it in my desktop and then I can open it, but now I can not open it in the browser, like e.g. .doc or .xls

I have noticed that there are some features in library tools/documents like check out (enable) and check in (disable), and I don't know if I have to configure this options.

Some idea¿?


Thanks in advance.

I am developing a custom workflow using Sharepoint Designer 2007 in which workflow has to send a notification email with a link to a document which is in another document library. For eg: Doc A in Library A ( to which workflow is attached) sending an email with a link to Doc B in Library B.(Doc B is a document having specific information about Doc A.)  Can this be done? When i tried, i am getting HTTP 404 error. Workflow is initiated manually. I am having site collection Admin rights. Has anyone done this? Any help appreciated. Thanks in Advance.

Error when providing email setting into document library setting.



I am trying to create Email enable SharePoint Lists and Libraries so users can send an email directly to it. This is a great functionality for users to be able to contribute directly from their inboxes.

I am following this video


I am using SharePoint 2007.

I have configured Incoming email setting in Central Administration->Operations.

After this I have used Shared Document. I went to Setting of Shared Document Library.
Then I set options like:

Allow this document library to receive e-mail?  -> Yes
Email Address : shareddoc@sharepoint.local.com
Group attachments in folders?  -> Save all attachments in folders grouped by e-mail sender
Overwrite files with the same name? -> No
Save original e-mail? -> No
Save meeting invitations?  -> No
E-mail security policy: -> Accept e-mail messages based on document library permissions

After providing this setting, I clicked on OK button and I got an error :
Error in the application.

I checked Log file and event viewer also, but there is not entry fou

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

Send email when downloading a file from a document library


I'm setting up a public facing SharePoint site for my company, a software house (did I show my age by calling it that?). We're wanting to put together a list of of software downloads, each item on the list having configured permissions for different groups (such as Group A can see downloads 1 thru 3, Group B can see items 1- 5, and Group C can see all 10 items)

When a logged in group member downloads the file (Send To > Download a copy) or by clicking the litem name, I want to send that person an email, which will contain setup instructions and unlock passwords, etc.

How can this be done?

I've googled and googled, but not been able to find any clues, which is a little unnerving.

A true software developer is one who, when told to 'Go to Hell', sees the 'go to', rather than the destination, as harmful.

Trying to send email using Sharepoint Designer 2007 workflow and email enabled list


I have a a list that recieves email. I have few fields that shows me the originator: "E-Mail From" and "E-Mail Sender".

I am trying to create a workflow that will generate an auto reply to the originator but the SPD fails to recognize the email address in these two fields. It's either truncating part of it or uses the html ( href=mailto:Demo@DemoSomething.com) in the To field.

Library - Fill Columns with data from email

I have an inbound email enabled Library.  The Library has several columns created for it.  I would like to be able to send an email into the Library and have these columns filled from information in the email.  Is this possible using WSS 3.0?  What are the basic steps?  If I understand SharePoint well enough, I'm guessing is that I have to include the columns as Metadata in the body of the email and then assign this Metadata to the appropriate Library columns when new email is uploaded to the Library.
