Virto Incoming Email Service 2.0: New Features for Effective Processing
Emails in Microsoft SharePoint
VirtoSoftware announces the new release of simple and effective service
for Microsoft SharePoint 2007 and 2010 for routing incoming emails.
San Francisco, CA, May 03, 2010 -- VirtoSoftware announces the new
release of simple and effective service for Microsoft SharePoint 2007 and
2010 for routing incoming emails. The new version allows for handling
emails from both POP3 and IMAP servers.
Microsoft SharePoint enables incoming email routing. SharePoint default
email service collects messages from specified email addresses and put
the information from the messages into a predefined SharePoint list. The
service is often used for organizing some help desk or customer support
services, where processing incoming mail usually serves as the first step
in the workflow scheme.
However, the default SharePoint service has some shortcomings that
restrict its usefulness, and applicability. First, it allows collecting
email messages from SMTP servers only while POP3 servers are not
supported. Second, it does not allow for collecting emails from more than
one mail server or domain. Third, the service supports only default
SharePoint list types and cannot put email information to a list of a
custom type. Finally, the deployment and setting up procedures are not
that quick and simple. Together, these shortcomings can prevent
SharePoint users from organizing effective enough email processing scheme
and, thus, high quality workflow or support service.
Virtosoftware ( http://www.virtosoftware.com ) offers an alternative
solution that on the one hand is much simpler in deployment and usage,
and on the other hand provides SharePoint users with additional features
that fix the shortcomings of the default SharePoint email service. In
addition to all the features available when using the default service the
Virto Incoming Email Service 2.0 allows for collecting mail from both
POP3 and IMAP servers, collecting mail from multiple email servers and
domains and enables gathering information from emails in SharePoint lists
of any type including custom ones. This makes the Virto Service 2.0 one
of the simplest and at the same time powerful tool for processing emails
from POP3 and IMAP servers.
Virtosoftware have also presented detailed instructions on using the main
new feature of the release - handling emails from IMAP servers, that was
not available in the first version of the service released in November
2009. The instructions are available at http://www.virtosoftware.com.
