MOSS 2007 Configuring Incoming Email for Sharepoint on SBS 2008 (Small Business Server)

01/04/2010

By defaultĀ  this feature is not enabled in SBS 2008, as Exchange and WSSv3 are installed on the same box. It can nevertheless be enabled by configuring an email domain to be used by the SharePoint site and a foreign connector on Exchange to take care of the mail routing (using Foreign Connector Cmdlets) to a drop folder (used by the SharePoint Site).
