Missing Email Settings
Hi ThereWe have a problem with the EmailSettings.aspx page in MOSS. We have set the incoming email settings in Central Admin and the Document Library in question has the incoming email settings link. The document library allows incoming email and the address has been set.Does anyone know why, on the EmailSettings.aspx page the Incoming email section is there but the Email Attachments, Email Message, E-Mail Meeting Invitations and Email Security sections are missing?CheersAlan

Hi there Alan, How did you create the lists on the site? For exampel, a simple custom list does not have incoming email settings. A list created under communications category (such as announcements, discussion board, etc.) has the incoming email settings. To take that even further, announcements has all the relevant options you wish but calendar does not have them all. Therefore, choosing the type of list defines what kind of features there are relevant to Incoming Email settings for that list Hope this helps? Cheers Geoff

Hi GeoffThats good to know.The list is a Document Library. The list is created as part of the site template. The plot thickens a bit as the additional email settings appear for some users and not others, all have email addresses and allow incoming email.CheersAlan

Hi Alan, As said, Incoming Mail Settings and variations of what is available is hard-coded and SharePoint will only show Incoming Email settings link for OOTB lists of type Announcements, Event, Document Library, Picture Library, XML Form, Discussion Board, Posts. As for the 'plot thickens' have permissions been defined to allow access to certain features of the document library? In anycase, the key reason why I would say your incoming mail settings Email Message, E-Mail Meeting Invitations and Email Security section are invisible is because your Document Library must have been based on a custom list type, and that maybe it has a custom mail event handler attached to it.
