  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) March 02, 2011 - Beijing, China - SharePointBoost, a leading developer of SharePoint Web Parts and add-ons designed to help businesses harness the full power of SharePoint, has launched a web-part to allow Microsoft's SharePoint and Outlook connection to be more simplified, SharePoint Outlook Integration (

    SharePoint Outlook Integration allows for the ease of dragging and dropping an e-mail to SharePoint from Outlook. Without this tool, moving e-mail files from Outlook to SharePoint can be quite cumbersome depending on how many e-mail files there are to move. Here are many reasons why this product will help with the transfer of e-mail from Outlook to SharePoint.

    With a section in the quick sidebar in Outlook, dragging and dropping can now be achieved right from the Outlook user interface. This also allows for dragging and dropping of multiple e-mail files for grouping up items for backup. Click, shift and click will allow for bulk drag and drop. This convenience allows transfer for as many e-mail files in an e-mail for better expediency.

    SharePoint Outlook Integration also has a feature for moving of e-mail attachments. If by chance, e-mails are not relevant with their attachments; this feature allows uploading only the attachment into a SharePoint library.

    Uploading e-mail files to SharePoint requires renaming of every file because SharePoint does not allow for special characters in the file name. This causes a delay as well as more time wasted on moving an e-mail over to SharePoint. SharePoint Outlook Integration allows for bypass of this process. Instead of saving the e-mail file with the special characters, this product saves the e-mail file with the current title.

    Entering in e-mail metadata is the most cumbersome part of transferring e-mail files from Outlook into SharePoint. For every file transferred, there are 8 sections to fill out to help organize e-mails. Just imagine having hundreds of e-mails to back-up, this would make backing up even more work because you will need to remember who has sent you what e-mail along with when they've sent it, and if there is any attachments just to name a few. This can be a lot of work for one person to do, and it's a lot non-value added activity. SharePoint Outlook Integration fully extracts all of the metadata from e-mails for you to simplify the back-up of e-mails. It fills in all of the extracted available e-mail information to help categorize and classify e-mails and attachments.

    To help with the categorizing process, the system admin can create predefined libraries for a certain kind of document, or from a certain department. This will help organize e-mails as well as makes sure certain departments have the resources they need. Classifying e-mails has never been easier with SharePoint Outlook Integration.

    When dragging and dropping an e-mail file, there are many other processes involved that are usually overlooked. These features are the basic outline of moving Outlook e-mails and attachments to SharePoint. Feel free to download your 30-day free trial of SharePointBoost's Outlook Integration ( today.
