iManage/Worksite NRL to Document and Email converter Mobile


Currently you need to purchase imanage mobility server to be able to view NRL files remotely.

We had a request, for users to be able to email Worksite NRL links from any devices especially Mobile devices to an email address and it emails them back the document for review.

It looked like this site software could do it at one stage : , however it’s not going anymore , so we developed a Powershell Script to do this.

1) Create a mailbox in Exchange 2010 where you want to get emails sent to . e.g. Change the value below in the script MAILBOXWHEREREQUESTSGETSENT to the alias of the Email account

2)Under the Inbox create a Folder called Complete and Folder Called External

3)Give the user who will be running this script Send as as well as Full Permissions to mailbox

4)Replace below in script IMANAGESQLSERVERNAME to the SQL server of your iManage Database

5)Where you run this script make sure the user running the script has access to C:\Temp\

6)Add this script as scheduled task to check Mailbox
