You may send e-mail messages directly to a BSCW folder if the folder permits this. Such e-mail messages may contain arbitrary attachments and are stored in BSCW as e-mail message objects according to the Internet standard RFC 822.
By adding the e-mail address of a BSCW folder to a project distribution list, you may, e.g., create a complete e-mail archive of the project. Project members need no longer store all important e-mail messages within their own e-mail systems.
Sending documents to a folder as attachments of an e-mail message is a convenient alternative to uploading these documents using the Web-based interface.
