SharePoint Document Workflow: Extracting email addresses and sending emails

Download

Right click “Save as…”

In this 3rd part of the series that I am doing on "Building Document Workflow" in SharePoint/MOSS 2007, I am demonstrating one of the more widely used functions in document workflow: Sending Emails.  In this scenario, I have a SharePoint List configured to receive email from outside of the corporate firewall (see the links below to learn how to configure your server to do the same), and from that document I extract the email address and then send an automated email response within the workflow.
