Incoming email setting

    Question

  • How can we set incoming email on a shared or mapped drive ? I've searched for this issue but I haven't found any way to change this setting via stsadm or  SQL Server or registery...

  • Hi,

     

    According to TechNet article, incoming e-mail for Office SharePoint Server 2007 uses the SMTP service. The SMTP service can be either installed on one or more servers in the farm, or administrators can provide an e-mail drop folder for e-mail forwarded from the service on another server. The drop folder option is not recommended because administrators of the other server can affect the availability of incoming e-mail by changing the configuration of SMTP, and because this requires the additional step of configuring permissions to the e-mail drop folder.

     

    If a drop folder is not used, the SMTP service must be installed on each server that is used to receive and process incoming e-mail. Typically, this includes every front-end Web server in the farm.

     

    When incoming e-mail settings are set to advanced mode, you must ensure that certain accounts have the correct permissions to the e-mail drop folder.

     

    It seems that you don’t need to share the drop folder.

  • Hello
    Thank you for your answer, I had read those documents before. Although they provide very good information, but there's no reference to shared drives, my question, in them. In IIS, it only accepts local drives, so that doesn't help either.
