Can you save email attachments directly into SharePoint? What is the best way to get documents from an email onto SharePoint? Do I always have to save it to my pc before uploading it to a site?

Are you running Windows XP? The WebDAV client in XP is much better than 2000, it seems to be able to save directly to SharePoint when 2000 can’t. You may find my blog post on WebDAV interesting. It’s at thorprojects.com/blog/archive/2005/09/12/223.aspx

If you create a public folder in Exchange, and then enable email attachments in SharePoint, you can then copy the appropriate emails into the public folder, and the attachments will automatically be saved into the document library that you specify.

In SharePoint, go to:

1 SharePoint Central Administration
2 Configure Virtual Server Settings
3 Select a virtual server
4 Virtual Server General Settings
5 At the bottom of the page is a section on enabling email attachments

If you save them as MSG files, you will need to get the MSG IFilter
installed on your search server(s) so the results will show up in portal
search. Some suggest saving them as TXT files.

FWIW, v3 will let you CC a list whenever you send an email.

Use Email-Driven doc library, it shall auto save all ur attached files to a configured Doc –library.
