Upload Emails/Attachments From Outlook To SharePoint RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is there any tool that will allow you to directly add emails or email attachments to SharePoint?

    At present I have users who are saving hese to a SharePoint forder that they have mapped through Explorer. If possible I'd like to do away with this and I think if theres a feature where you can click an 'Upload To SharePoint' type button or some similar option it might be a solution.

    Cheers

    Paul

  • None out of the box but there is a 3rd party tool called Harmon.ie which gets a lot of love on that front.

  • You can create an add-in for Outlook using Visual Studio for this. Idea is to access your attachments and using lists.asmx web service upload them.  An add-in in C# or VB.NET will need to read your attachments, convert them to binary array and encode the results (base64 encoded string). The rest should simple. Is easy with Visual Studio to consume a web service.

  • I'd second this.  It's a very powerful tool and brings back functionality that the earliest versions of SharePoint had.

    You can find it here and read some product reviews here.

  • Yes harmonie is a great tool

    We were using another third party tool called PageLight.  The tool has Uploading an Email to SharePoint functionality but also we were able to do additional processing before Saving Email Attachments to SharePoint.  What I meant is that it had a simple transformation module which supported .NET and allowed us to massage date before uploading to SharePoint.

    When did the comparison, there were so many tools which were almost similar.  I could not find anything on Codeplex.  All the tools we reviewed in the market were not expensive.

  • Hi,

    If you are using Outlook 365, you can download Sharepoint Connect from Microsoft App Store. The app allows you to upload to Sharepoint directly from Outlook 365 or desktop
