Hi everyone.

Sorry to do this, but i have been searching for hours and can not seem to sort this problem out.

I am running a test environment to start using Sharepoint 2010. Single Server Farm.

I have setup exchange/sharepoint to enable incoming emails into sharepoint and they it is sending emails to without any problems and putting the emails into C:\inetpub\mailroot\Drop. However, they are just staying in the folder.

All services used including smtp, Local Service, Network Service, WSS_ADMIN_WPG and WSS_WPG and all these have permission to the drop folder.

I have also created the document library to accept incoming emails from any sender.

When i first created the document library, it worked and i had 2 emails in the library 2 days ago, now just tested it again, and it is keeping the emails in the drop folder and not putting them into my library?

Does anyone know why or how i can fix this.

Thank you
