Receiving e-mail

  Asked By: Haley    Date: Sep 19    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 546

Can a general folder/e-mail box be set up within SPS to RECEIVE e-
mails from users? For example, an area where potential employees
could send their resumes and SPS would receive them. Then, those who
are subscribed to that area would recieve a notification that a new
resume has been received by SharePoint? Has anyone done something
like this?

I need something just like that also. Let me know if you find anything

Sure...you can create a public folder in exchange and have the sharepoint
index it. A new mail sent to that folder (a public folder is also a mailbox
and can have an email address for all to send  items to it) will be indexed
and then notifications will be sent.

It's certainly a bit tricky but not impossible. Here's an idea:

Make sure you have the Windows 2000 IIS5 SMTP Service installed and
configured properly on your SPS machine
Open IIS5 MMC and drill down to the SMTP Service
Create a new remote domain like "mydomain.com"
Configure it to forward all mail to your real domain via a smart host

Now create a normal folder in your workspace
Mount the SPS ExIFS drive (see MSKB) to allow file system access
Open Windows Explorer and drill down to the folder
Set permissions to allow "ANONYMOUS LOGIN" to read and write files.

Once done with the easy part, you need to start coding ;-)

Write a Windows 2000 SMTP Transport Event Sink that catches all mail
send to the particular mail address you want to use and save the message
as .EML (SMTP MIME format) into the workspace folder.
