We are currently running Sharepoint 2010 on a Server 2008 Standard Server

I'm looking for a way to upload files to a document library automatically. Here's the scenario, we have a program that generates reports daily and they are then stored in a network share. Is there a way for Sharepoint to monitor this network shared folder and automatically pull new files into a document library?

I've already done some preliminary research and found the following article but it would appear I need to have Server 2008 R2.

I've also tried using a Sharepoint Workspace but that doesn't create a traditional folder on my file server that the program can save files to.

On a side note, the program that generates the files automatically can email them as well. Can files be uploaded to Sharepoint via email?

If anyone has any ideas or workarounds please let me know.
