Running workflows as System account

  Asked By: Tanesha    Date: Mar 03    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2209

I have some custom code in an event handler that intercepts an email to a list
and parses the body of XML an adds it to another list.

My problem is that the item is added by the System account and therefore will
not run a workflow attached to that second list. Looking this up I find that a
workflow can't be run by the System account "by design" in WSS as a security
measure. The fix seems to be to switch my application pool account to another
non-System account. I've tried that. It doesn't seem to be taking, even down to
rebooting the server doesn't change anything.

How do I change the application pool account and make workflows work...?
