Create an e-mail enabled SharePoint document library on the Internal Web site

Applies To: Windows SBS 2008

You can archive e-mail messages in a SharePoint document library on the internal Web site. To do so, you create a security group that is set to receive e-mail messages. When you create the group account, opt to archive e-mail messages in a document library. After the document library is created, members of this security group can access it from the organization’s internal Web site.

To create a SharePoint document library for archiving e-mail messages on the intranet
  1. Open the Windows SBS Console.

  2. On the navigation bar, click the Users and Groups tab, and then click Groups.

  3. In the task pane, click Add a new group.

  4. In the Add a New GroupWizard, do the following:

    1. On the Add a New Group page, in the Group type section, select Security group, and then select the Enable this security group to receive e-mail check box.

    2. On the Create a group e-mail address page, in the E-mail delivery options section, select Archive e-mails sent to this group in a document library.

    3. Follow the instructions to complete the wizard.

To view the e-mail messages in the SharePoint document library, open the internal Web site, and in the Quick Launch pane, in the Sites section, click Archived E-Mails. In the details pane, select the document library that contains the e-mail messages that you want to view.
