Manually create Discussion Capture pages (7.1.1)

The manual method works with any mail or distribution list. This can be an external mailing list run through a 3rd party such as Gmail. All that is required is that you can access the settings for the mailing list in order to add addresses.

Before you begin

Incoming email must be enabled. Check the Incoming email page. You will need this email address for configuring Discussion Capture manually.

Manually create a Discussion Capture page

  1. Add the email address from your intranet's incoming mail screen (Administration panelNotifications section > Incoming mail page) to the mail or distribution group.
  2. Add a page in the navigation where you want the Discussion Capture page to be.
  3. Select the Mailing list page type from the page type dropdown to the right of the page title.
  4. Enter the mailing list email address in the Mailing list email address text box.
  5. The checkbox Archiving enabled is selected by default. Deselect it if you do not want to automatically archive the emails.
  6. Add content to the page if desired and click Publish.
After adding a Mailing List page, you will be able to see the new page listed on the Administration panel: Notifications section > Discussion capture page. On this page you can choose at any time whether or not a mailing list's emails are captured and archived by clicking enable or disable in the Archiving column.
