In this topic you will learn how to:
Follow one of these methods:
You can drag multiple messages from your email to the harmon.ie sidebar by holding the CTRL key while selecting the messages to drag.
Use the SharePoint button.
Note: The SharePoint button is an optional component. To learn more about the features it provides, and how to install it, read the help topic Working with email.
Select Save email to SharePoint from the SharePoint button in the action bar of an open email message. The message is uploaded to the default SharePoint location defined in the application preferences.
You can override this location for a specific email message using the SharePoint button's Change email target location command.
If a default location is not defined, you will be prompted to select a SharePoint location for the email message. You can save the selected location as a default for future operations, by selecting the Save as the default location check box.
Email messages uploaded to SharePoint are saved as
.eml documents, which is an industry standard used by email clients, servers, and applications. The
.eml document contains the entire message, including body text and attachments. You can instruct harmon.ie to save each email message with a unique name.
.emldocuments assigns a unique ID as the name. This is due to a limitation in Internet Explorer’s handling of URLs that contain characters with Unicode values larger than 255. You can still view the original subject in the Title property.
Note: When working with harmon.ie, it is possible to map the email headers (To, From, Subject, Date, etc.) to SharePoint document metadata. To learn how, read Saving email headers in SharePoint columns.
If several messages from the same discussion thread are stored on SharePoint, you are asked if you want to replace the existing message / save it as a new version of the .msg file, or rename the new message. To learn more, read Replacing existing documents.
To set the default location where email messages are saved, open File > Preferences and select harmon.ie > Email Settings.
