In Alfresco, you can make the information store available via e-mail IMAP protocol. It is supported by virtually all e-mail clients, and you can set up Alfresco as an extra inbox without requiring the installation of local programs. Then you can drag and drop emails to archive them. Common documents in Alfresco will also be available through the email client wrapped in a virtual e-mail message, where metadata is visible, and with clickable links to manage content files. Alfresco can also give each folder a unique email address so you can send content via SMTP messages directly to the information store in Alfresco.
