This article takes you through the steps needed to take for creating document libraries or lists. 

Note: This can only be performed after incoming mail has been enabled.



1. Access your SharePoint site. Select Site Actions.


     




2. Create a new list or document library.


     





3. Select Document Library (in Example 1.) Give the list or document library a name as in example 2.

Example 1.


     




Example 2.


     





4. Select “Yes” to Allow this document library to receive e-mail.


     

     





5. Enter an alias for the list/library. For a document library it should be named something like “<customer domain_DocLibX>” (i.e.docs_orangeenvelope@sharepoint.securembox.com).

Note:  The alias will be an internal email address (i.e. docs_orangeenvelope@sharepoint.securembox.com)



     




To prevent confusion this needs to be a strict naming convention and please understand this address will not be used to send to the Library and is only an internal address.




6.  Create a contact using the Control Panel and use the Document Library address as the email address.

7. Create a Distribution List and add the Contact to the List or Document Library.


Note: To create a distrubution list, simply access the control panel using the administrative credentials, under "My Services" on the left, select Microsoft Exchange > Distribution Lists, then simply add whichever members you would like to receive mail from this list, for further information on adding members, please consult the following Knowledge Base article:


How to Add Members to a Distribution List.



You are now ready to accept incoming email.
