This article will help you to configure your MOSS2007 environment for libraries to receive incoming e-mail using a standard e-mail address that can be used both internally and externally.
In order to describe the steps to achieve the above task, we take the SharePoint farm as follows
Domain controller Exchange server 2003 DNS server SQL server 2005
Exchange server 2003
SQL server 2005
MOSS 2007 SP2 SMTP
MOSS 2007 SP2
MOSS creates and uses AD contacts to configure Email enabled document libraries. So we need to first determine where in AD these contacts can be created . I prefer if these contacts can be created in a separate or dedicated OU so that the troubleshooting becomes easier. Here is an example from my test environment.
Now, we need to configure an MX record for the MOSS server in DNS. Follow the below step
This will look like:-
Install and configure SMTP service
Now, we will create a new document library on a existing site , to do that
Now, open up your outlook and start sending emails to firstname.lastname@example.org with or without attachments. Wait for the timer service to run and the mails with / without attachments will appear in the document library list
