					    Context
    Automatically start a process when a user receives an email. For example, an email might start a
    process to create a Service Request, submit vacation dates for approval, or register a new user in a
    database.


    Description
    This is a process initiation Design Pattern where a process is started based on receipt of email. This
    pattern describes how to configure an email inbound initiate activity template to poll the email server
    for incomming messages and process them.


    Prerequisites
•   A process with Email Inbound Initiate activity
•   Process Integrator installed


    Solution
1. Add an ‘Email Inbound Initiate’ activity to a process.
2. Connect it to the first activity.

4. Configure Email Inbound Initiate Activity.

6. When mapping email message attachments to process data (Package or attachments), also map the
   file-extension to get email attachments stored in right format.

Consequences
Since the Email Inbound activity periodically polls the configured mail box, too many such activities or
too small a polling frequency can put unnecessary strain on the Mail Server.


Example Uses
In a customer complaint business process, you can configure an email inbound template as the initiate
activity in the process. The activity polls the email server and starts a new workflow when it receives a
customer complaint email message. In the following steps of the process, the system routes the email
through a manual activity to a person who reviews the complaint and resolves the issue.
