Auto forward Emails from Outlook to SharePoint Document Library

Some days before one of my client wanted to auto forward outlook emails to one of SharePoint document library. I ran through following steps to achieve the given task.
  • Make sure Target Doc Lib contains Email address and it’s working
  • Then go to Outlook and click on New > Contact
  • Add Email address of that document library into the Outlook Contacts.
  • Save it and now create a rule from Outlook > Tools > Rules and Alerts > New Rule
  • Select “Start from a blank rule” option.
  • Select Check messages when they arrive > Next
  • Select “Condition” for which you want to forward emails to Doc Lib in step 2.
  • Then select action “forwards it to people or distribution list” and click on people or distribution list
  • Select “Outlook Address book” from Address Book drop down and you will getSharePoint Document Library email address as a contact > Add it
  • Click on Next > Finish
Now send an email with that condition to check rule.
Feel free to ask me if you have any questions.
