Microsoft’s CodePlex Releases “SharePoint Outlook 2007/2010 Connector”

 
SharePoint Outlook 2007/2010 Connector makes it easier for outlook users to Upload Emails to SharePoint or Attach SharePoint Documents to an Email message. You’ll no longer have to save your email and upload from SharePoint UI, or download SharePoint documents and attach them to your email.

REVIEW – I asked SharePoint Microsoft MVP, Göran Husman, for a few quick comments:
This e-mail connector is similar to other tools from U2U & Colligo.  Even in SharePoint 2010 you will need a tool similar to this, since there will not be any way to import e-mail including their properties to a SharePoint list.
Pros:
 
    • Very easy-to-use tool to copy e-mail to SharePoint lists
    • Can choose between copy the complete mail, incl attachments, or store mail and attachments separate, (incl renaming the files)
    •  It’s FREE!
Cons:  
 
    • No mapping of e-mail metadata, i.e. the destination list will not store information like To, From, Subject, etc.  (The developer, Serkant Samurkas,  plans to add metadata mapping in a coming release, and I look forward to see this.)
