5.11 Adding Entries to a Folder Via E-Mail

Novell Vibe enables you to e-mail entries into folders. This is useful if you don’t have access to the Vibe site and you still want to create an entry. You can also text-message entries into folders, so when you don’t have access to a computer or the Internet, you can still capture thoughts and contribute to conversations.

NOTE:When you e-mail an appointment that contains HTML to a Vibe calendar, the HTML is stripped out of the appointment, and Vibe displays the appointment in plain text.

To e-mail entries into folders, you must have sufficient rights to create entries in the folder, as described in Section 7.1, Creating a Folder Entry.

You must also know the previously defined e-mail address for the folder.

To see the e-mail address of a folder:

  1. Navigate to the folder where you want to add entries via e-mail.

  2. Click the Footer toolbar, located at the bottom of the folder page.

    In the E-Mail Addresses section of the provided table, the e-mail address of the folder is displayed.

    This is the e-mail address that you use to make entries to the folder via e-mail.

If you are the folder owner and want to define an e-mail address for the folder, see Enabling Folders to Receive Entries through E-Mail in the Novell Vibe OnPrem 3.1 Advanced User Guide for instructions on how to do this.
