SharePoint 2010 - Enable and Configure Email Settings for a Calendar List

This article explains how to configure a SharePoint calendar list to receive email.

Note: You must be a site owner to perform the actions in this article.

You can perform this procedure to create items in the SharePoint calendar list for email messages that are received. The original email messages themselves are not saved in the calendar list.

Enable and configure e-mail settings for a calendar list

  1. Browse to the announcement list you wish to configure to receive email.
  2. Select List Settings from the List Tools Ribbon.
  3. In the Communications section, click Incoming e-mail settings.
  4. In the Incoming Email section, select Yes to allow the list to receive email and type in a unique address in the E-mail address box.
  5. In the E-Mail Attachments section, choose whether you want this list to archive e-mail attachments. If you select No, e-mail attachments will be discarded.
  6. In the E-Mail Security section, choose whether to archive e-mail messages only from members of the site who can write to the library or to archive regardless of who sends the email message.
    Important: Archiving email messages from all senders lets everyone write to your library, including unauthenticated users. Because of the potential security risk, you should consider this option carefully before you configure it.
  7. Click OK to save the changes.

Update the list's description with the new email address

This step is optional, but is highly recommended so that members of your site can easily find the e-mail address of the list.

  1. In the General Settings section on the List Settings page, click Title, description and navigation.
  2. Enter the email address of the list in the Description box.
  3. Click Save to save the changes.
    The email address will now appear below the title of the list in the banner near the top of the page
