    I thought I read somewhere that you could configure Sitefinity to accept email content submissions. i.e. Allow a user to submit a publicly viewable status report by simply mailing it to a specific address.

    Was I imagining this or is it a capability?

    TIA

    Hello,

    The e-mail campaign report page is accessible only in the backend. The functionality to e-mail this report is not supported. 

    The report is available under:
    EmailCampaigns ->  Report /on the right side of <your campaign>/

    Honestly your answer has nothing to do with what I was trying to find out.

    I just want to know if it's possible to submit content via email rather then having to go to the page in edit mode?

    Hi John
    I think you are looking for this information
    http://www.sitefinity.com/documentation/documentationarticles/developers-guide/how-to/how-to-schedule-a-task-to-import-pop3-content

    It shows how you can query a POP3 mail box, read email and then act on that email.
    Hopefully that helps

    Hi,

    Could you please describe more detailed the scenario.

    If we have the steps that you need to perform and the result you want to achieve we will be able to confirm if it is possible and how it could be done.

    There are no steps yet.

    All I want to do is be able to have contributors email to a specific address which then takes the body of the email and publishes it as a content block or news article.

    That gets me closer. I'm a little surprised that it is not just built into the system rather then me having to write code for it.

    Hello John,

    Actually the solution as proposed also by Darrin Robertson is the correct approach.

    There implementation depends on the custom scenario, so in the sample you can see its base implementation and extend it in order to cover the specifics.
