Outlook 2007 Email Drag and Drop in Sharepoint Document Library




I have question regarding the email drag and drop in Sharepoint Document
library folder in Outlook.

Following are sthe steps i have done to achieve Drag and Drop.

1. I have created a Sharepoint Document Library Folder in Outlook and
Assigned Document library URL to the Home page of the Outlook Folder.

2. Wrote an event handler handler function for that Folder.

3. In that Even handler procedure i have captured the Droped email item and
Captured the Web URL of the Document library Folder we have created in
outlook and save the email item in the location wih ".Msg" format.

4. I can successfully drag an email from Outlook and Drop it in Sharepoint
Document library Folder we have created in Outlook 2007 . This uploads the
document to the Document library and we can see the uploaded email as ".msg"
file in document library.

How to Upload the document with corresponding Metadata to the Share point
Document Library Programatically using VB.net

SharePoint 2003 / 2007 WSS / SPS / MOSS.

document library without leaving Outlook. There is offline
functionality so you can drag into these folder while offline and you
can create new SharePoint document library folders from Outlook.
