Emails can be sent to a SharePoint folder through 3 methods in this post. If you want to know the reasons why some users do so, there are 3 reasons that may help you get rid of this confusion.

  • Collaboration and Sharing: SharePoint can create a private space for you and your team members to work together. By sending emails to SharePoint, you can easily share the emails from SharePoint with your team members which improves team collaboration.
  • Enhanced Search and Discovery: Sending emails to SharePoint can help you save time in searching emails because SharePoint has better search capabilities than email servers. You can quickly locate the emails on SharePoint in terms of the sender, recipient, or other elements.
  • Integration with Other Apps: SharePoint can integrate with many other robust apps like Power Automate and Power AI. So, after moving emails to SharePoint, you can centralize the emails from others by the automatic workflows effortlessly.

Save Email to SharePoint as PDFs via MultCloud [2 Direct Ways]

There is no better choice than using MultCloud to transfer emails to SharePoint Online. MultCloud is devoted to managing your multiple cloud drives with one app as its name shows. To move emails to SharePoint, you can use Email Migration or Email "Copy to".

Your emails will be sent to SharePoint Online in PDF format by these 2 MultCloud functions. Also, both of the functions support migrating multiple emails to a cloud with or without attachments. Let's see how they work.

Way 1: Outlook Email to SharePoint by Email Migration

Step 1: Enter MultCloud in any browser and sign up for a MultCloud account.

Step 2: Add Outlook by clicking “Add Email” and the Outlook icon. When a pop-up window appears, log in to your account in it. You have to follow similar steps to add SharePoint Online to MultCloud, too.

Note: Outlook will be released in early September but Gmail is already on now. So, you can refer to the steps to save Gmail emails to SharePoint.

Step 3: Click “Email Migration” and choose Outlook and SharePoint Online in the boxes. If you don't want to save email attachments to SharePoint Online, you can open "Options" and unselect the box beside "Save Attachments".  Then tap the “Migrate Now” button and your Outlook emails will be transferred quickly to SharePoint Online.

  • A new user can convert up to 50 emails to PDFs per month. Therefore, if you have more emails to convert, these may be inadequate for you. In this regard, you can join the MultCloud VIP club so that you may have unlimited traffic and the number of emails won’t be restricted.
  • If you think manually choosing emails is not so convenient, you are recommended to use the Email Filter. By Filter, you just need to enter the sender or recipient, and MultCloud will pick them out for transfer. Also, you can order MultCloud to select the emails by their attachments, date, or status.

Send Email to SharePoint via Power Automate

 Many people may know that we can use Power Automate to save email to SharePoint List or document library. Also, there are some templates on Power Automate to save email attachment to SharePoint. Here this post will show you the specific steps on how to save Outlook emails to SharePoint.

Step 1: Open Power Automate, select "Create" in the left sidebar, and choose "Automated cloud flow".

Step 2: Name this flow and choose "When a new email arrives (V3)" in Office 365 Outlook. Then click "Create".

Step 3: Sign in to your Outlook account in the task box and fill in the settings.

Step 4: Click "+ New step" and select "Export email (V2)" in Office 365 Outlook. Also, customize the settings.

Step 5: Click "+ New step" and select "Create file" in SharePoint. After setting this action, click "Save" and new emails will be sent to SharePoint as EML files.

Move Email to SharePoint via Download & Upload

There is another way for you to send emails to SharePoint. However, this way may be not as automatic as the former one since it needs you to download every email to your computer and then upload them to SharePoint. In this way, you may face the trouble that your emails can’t be previewed on SharePoint because of the incompatible format. Besides, you have to migrate the emails one by one which is annoying if you have masses of emails to migrate.

To make a comparison between the MultCloud solution and this solution, here the post still uses Gmail emails to SharePoint as an example.

Step 1: Enter Gmail and log in to your Gmail account.

Step 2: Open an email and click the 3-dots icon in the upper-right corner. Then choose “Download message” in the menu.

Step 3: Enter SharePoint and log in to your account.

Step 4: Click “Upload” in the upper-left corner, select the email that you downloaded before, and click “Open”. After finishing this step, that email is moved to SharePoint.
