Mail Sources

Note: This content is no longer updated. For the latest content, please go to the user guide for M-Files Online. For information on the supported product versions, refer to our lifecycle policy.

You can use external mail sources to save, manage, and share important email, and to make sure that important information does not get lost in email boxes. For example, you can set a designated archive account to import all email to the vault and to then delete the messages from the mail server. In the vault, you can manage the imported messages with the M-Files features. Example use cases include managing orders or archiving sent offers. You can use the Cc and Bcc fields to save sent email to the vault as well, for example proposals and order confirmations. To avoid junk mail, you can set the email account to accept email only from users in your organization.
