    More details

    This is a simple plugin which monitors an IMAP/S or POP3/S mailbox and publish emails as news entries. The space in which the news should be published can be defined as an email-address wildcard (email+spacekey@domain.net).

    For example: An email to the address "wiki+internal@domain.net" would be published in the space with the spacekey "internal".

    Attachments are supported. Image attachments are displayed automatically using the gallery macro.

    The email account is scanned every 5 minutes for new messages. If an IMAP account is used, then processed messages are moved to a folder named "Processed", invalid messages (where an exception occurred while handling them) are moved to a folder named "Invalid". If POP3 is used then processed/invalid messages are deleted from the account.

    Important 1: This only works if your email provider really supports wildcards in email addresses! GMail for example supports wildcards.

    Important 2: You have to use the spacekey, not the spacename!

    I really really want this add-on to work, but I'm not having any luck. I have my settings as follows: server: wiki@domain.com protocol: pop3 port: 110 I've sent emails to both wiki@domain.com and to wiki+spacekey@domain.com, but none of my email show up in the blog post feed. (Yes, I'm using wiki@domain.com as an example - I'd prefer not to share my actual server name here.) Should they show up somewhere else? (Is there a news macro I should embed on one of my pages?) Any additional information that folks can share would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi, I like this plugin a lot, but I am afraid I will have to disable it now since we are going for Confluence 5.4 at the end of the week. Any updates on when this plugin will support 5.4+? // Svante

    Hi Svante I have an update available. But frankly, the new marketplace user interface sucks so much, that I stopped in the middle of getting a new version online. Will try again this weekend. Thanks Lukas

    Just a hint for others. It took me 3 hours to find out how to configure this plugin. You must enter the following url into your browser: https:///admin/plugins/mail2news/editmailconfiguration.action

    I just installed and this plugin seems to work exceptionally well in filling a major gap in the Confluence Mail Archive service. Confluence Mail Archive can collect e-mail messages from a POP account, but there is no way to make these messages easily accessible to wiki users other than to direct them manually to the Browse>Mail link. There is no way to even provide a regular wiki page link to the Mail list! (confirmed this with Atlassian Support). So mail may be in a Space, but the average user may never be able to find it. The Plugin descritption above should be clearer about how a "+" wildcard address works. It took several failed tests before getting it to work. In the example provided wiki+spacekey@domain.com, the description is not clear that the REAL email address is JUST wiki@domain.com. Adding the "+spacekeyname@" will still deliver to the wiki@domain.com address (if your mail server accepts this kind of wildcard addition to the address -- Google hosted Apps accounts DO accept this kind of wildcard). So you set up the Plugin to collect mail from your wiki@domain.com e-mail address, and if a message is sent to the address wiki+blueteam@domain.com, the message will be posted as a news/blogpost in the Space with the "blueteam" SpaceKey Name.

    Stimmt AG seems to hide every information about how to configure and use this plug in. No wiki, no documentation at all. So to configure this plug-in is a nightmare.
