Enabling incoming email on SharePoint Document Libraries and Lists

As you know, Microsoft is gently nudging users to migrate away from public folders and onto SharePoint document libraries and lists. In the initial release of Exchange Server 2007, there wasn’t even a GUI interface to manage public folders, although this was added in Exchange 2007 SP1. It is fairly easy to configure SharePoint to accept incoming email for document libraries and lists. Once a document library or list is configured to accept incoming email, you can send messages to the Document library or list just like a public folder.
