We have a requirement for email-address enabled folders with a custom “files” view.
It should work as follows:
User sends an email with an attachment to a folder.
Folder receives the email with the file(s) attached.
User views the folder using any Nextcloud client and sees only the attachments (files), but can click to view the original email text (not required but nice to have).
Odd request, I know, but it’s interesting how many people like to click forward and send rather than save, search for a folder or share, then click save/upload. The ability to send an email to a folder also has application in the field of finance/accounting/bookkeeping. A financial system like a Sage app or Quickbooks can be configured to send Invoices to the folder as well as the customer. The customer can delete the email but still find their invoice or statement later in the folder. Folder permissions can control what they can do, such as “read-only” and the folder could also be configured to send notifications, for example when Tax returns are prepared and ready.
Please let me know if any developers are interested. We have a very small budget but are willing to contribute for this and turn it over to the community as a free add-on app to Nextcloud. We’re loving Nextcloud!
