Inbound e-mail 'user not in contributor group' error

Hi all

I get the following error message when sending e-mail to an Alfresco 3.4.c folder/node: The user 'username' in not in the email contributor group.

I've set the following configuration for Inbound SMTP in Alfresco 3.4.c:

email.inbound.enabled=true
email.inbound.unknownUser=admin
email.server.enabled=true
email.server.port=25
email.server.domain=mydomain.com
I've also added "admin" into the EMAIL_CONTRIBUTORS group.

I thought this should work like this, even if the sending e-mail address is not found in Alfresco, as it states in the Inbound SMTP Email Server Configuration wiki page: "If a matching user is not found, then the current user is set to the "unknownUser" specified by the email.inbound.unknownUser property."

Any ideas?

regards,
Mikko Koivunen
