Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 (via comcast) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Trying to setup up a sharepoint site that I can have emails sent into a library. The option for email is not showing under the settings/communications. (only RSS settings). The basic help indicates " E-mail support is enabled in Central Administration at the Web application level." I do not know where this central administation area is so I can enable email for the site library.

    Help wit this would be apprereciated

  • If you cannot setup the incomming e-mail on the server, it will be quite hard to send e-mail to your library.

    You should contact the people hosting your server and ask them if they can provide you with the service.

  • Hi,


    You should enable and configure e-mail setting for a library:


    Someone encountered that they couldn’t find “incoming e-mail settings” as an option in the list settings, because they hadn’t installed SMTP service on the SharePoint Server. Once STMP is configured, you have to then set “Incoming e-mail settings” in Central Administration.


    I wish you every success in your important work.

    Best regards,

    David HM
