Do you configure incoming  email as "automatic" or do you specify a drop

Answer #2    Answered By: Katelynn Donovan     Answered On: Dec 07

Regrdless of automatic versus drop...

Do you have the appropriate A record and MX records pointing to your SMTP

Answer #3    Answered By: Geraldine Slater     Answered On: Dec 07

The issue was permissions on the drop  folder. The service account
had admin access on the server, but needed explicit access to the
folder itself.

I'm trying to get my WSS site to accept incoming  email. I thought I had
everything configured correctly but my email  is hanging in the Exchange
queue. I know I'm missing something but can't figure it out. Anyone
seen this before or know a solution?

Answer #5    Answered By: Alka Sarabhai     Answered On: Dec 07

Do you have an MX record for the subdomain that you've assigned to

In other words, does Exchange know how to route mail to your SharePoint

Answer #6    Answered By: Eashan Nadkarni     Answered On: Dec 07

First, Check if you get any smtp logs  on the server. That will tell you whether
your email  is even attempting to come to the box. This implies that exchange to
server connection is correctly setup.

Second, Try to send out an email by using telnet on port 25 to the server. If
the email goes and appears in your doc library/configured list, then your
sharepoint setup is correct.

After this you will know where to focus on troubleshooting.

I need a solution that allows incoming  email to a document  library, where the
email can be grouped by sender, and sorted by date. I know SP has some out of
the box capabilities but i have not found good documentation on it.

Answer #8    Answered By: Mia Scott     Answered On: Dec 07

If incoming  email has been enabled for the web application, then you should have
a link in the library  settings to configure incoming email  for the library. One
of the options in the configuration settings is to group the attachments by
subject or sender. You could then create a view that is sorted by date.

Answer #9    Answered By: Kristian Chaney     Answered On: Dec 07

I need the actual documentation which explains how to set it up and how it

Answer #10    Answered By: Alicia Scott     Answered On: Dec 07

Take a look at the following PDF. It explains how to setup libraries for
incoming email. Once you've done that configure the library  the way Daniel
