You can setup sharepoint libraries to receive email from unauthenticated sources, so this should work.

In your incoming email settings, in the Email Security section, choose "Accept e-mail messages from any sender"

This should allow anyone to email into your document library.

Hope this helps...

you may want to look at how your internal email is configured to ensure that emails sent from outside the organisation are able to routed to your sharepoint server.

I would start by checking that emails are reaching the drop box on the email server. If they aren't getting there, then there is an issue with routing your emails, which is not related to sharepoint, so that will be the first thing to fix.

If the emails are getting to your sharepoint server, but are still not getting through, you may be able to set up an email address at your company that has an auto-forward through to your sharepoint library.

I believe that you should be able to receive emails from an external email address - otherwise it would mean that anyone with an internet facing sharepoint site would not be able to use this functionality...

Hope this helps...

First, all I know about SharePoint is how you write it. If that's acceptable to you, here some questions:
- can you send internal mail to the library?
- if you can, what is the mail address you use? [assuming: library@yourcompany.local]
- is all external mail to be routed through your Domino server?
- assuming that it is, can you do the following:
      add a fake user called library to the Domino Dictionary
      the user should have as short name "library"
      give that user the forwarding address library@yourcompany.local

The library can then be reached as library@yourcompany.con

Prerequisites: relaying to the SharePoint server should be allowed in the Domino server's Configuration document.
