How to assign a user friendly email address to a document library

  • How to assign a user friendly email address to a document library ASaxena11

    I have a document library which is configured for inbound emails. The current email address assigned is [email protected].

    I need to somehow map a generic email ID (say [email protected]) to this list so that when I send out a mail to [email protected] it goes in the document library.

    Any help/pointers will be appreciated.

  • I am not the email expert, and this might sound like a dummy solution, but I would configure a rule in your email server to forward every email from [email protected] to [email protected]

    SharePoint can also read emails from Dump folder, so if you can "dump" your emails from your email server to a folder on SharePoint server in EML format that would could also work.

    UPDATE: For both approaches the email (To) must be the same as specified in Document Library settings. Otherwise it will not be imported to Document Library. (by Alex)

  • I have a document library using a document set content type. I can create a new document set through the UI and it works perfectly. I'm now trying to create a document set in this library programmatically and it's not working properly. Here is the code (based on MSDN documentation): // Set some properties Hashtable properties = new Hashtable(); properties.Add("UploadComplete", false... for the set looks like a folder instead of the document set icon clicking on the document set doesn't show the document set home page, it just behaves like a normal document library running CAML queries shows

  • What do you think of using email-enabled document libraries in SP2007? Is it reliable? secure? or too complicated to get it to work correctly? Also would it accept emails from "anyone" sending to that address? What about other fields the document library may have (like for example adding a single line of text field to hold a classification field for example).

  • I recently had an incident where the email details of a SharePoint user were changed in Active Directory. These changes were not transferred into SharePoint and I had a problem in one of my web parts which uses the SPUser object to get the users email address. Is there a way to configure SharePoint 2007 to synchronise such data automatically? ** Update ** I changed my email address in AD and started a full profile import. I opened my user settings but see no change in my profile - it still shows my old email address

  • The value of a column is the name of the library in which the document is being inserted. Users are objecting to supplying a value when the value is already known. Seems to me there are two responses to this: remove the column (and rely upon the document library name) or automatically choose the library name from the dropdown of library names. If the latter, how might that be done (without code)?

  • I have a WSS 3.0 SharePoint site that is automatically displaying email addresses as mailto link. Ideally I want to prevent this from happening, this is a customised site and we will be forcing users to use the discussion area to send emails. Is there anyway to turn this facility off? It appears to be site specific i.e. I can enter an email address in any text field and it displays as converted to a mailto link.

  • I have a document library with a document template (docx) in which several Quick Parts are defined. The Quick Parts link to column data in the document library.

  • I am using SharePoint Server 2007 x64 and Windows Server 2008 x64. I have setup a site with the publishing portal template. I have granted anonymous access to all the sites. I have set some users to be the Approver role. Since during the document publishing workflow, SharePoint workflow needs to send email to approvers, I am wondering how to set the email address of a specific approver? And if the email I set for a specific approver is like [email protected], do I also need to set the SMTP/POP3 server of gmail (if needed, how)?

  • A client would like a column in a list which essentially contains a number of email addresses for users and distribution lists within his corporate network. It would be something akin to the People Picker but that cannot be used as it does not surface distribution groups. What we actually need is to display the current user's Outlook Address Book (Global Address List) instead of the People Picker. Obviously they could manually enter email addresses for these people/groups but this would take much longer. Any ideas?
