Confluence allows you to collect and archive mail within each space individually. This is a useful facility that allows you to archive all emails pertaining to a particular project on Confluence alongside it in the same space.

You can download mail from one or more pop-accounts. You can also import mail from mbox files either on your local system or on the Confluence server.

Mail is contained in the 'Mail' tab under the 'Browse Space' view of a space. You may need Space Administrator rights to access this view.

Go to the 'Browse Space' view. There are two ways to browse a space:

  • Go to a page in the space and select the option you want from the 'Browse' menu. The corresponding tab of the 'Browse Space' view will open.
  • Or click the icon next to the space name on the Dashboard. The 'Pages' tab of the 'Browse Space' view will open.

(If you are not a space administrator for the target space, contact your Confluence administrator to request Space Admin permission.)

From here, you can navigate mail easily and also use the 'Quick Search' to search mail and the attachments it contains.

The ability to archive mail applies only to global spaces, not personal spaces. Please see Working with Spaces Overview for information about the differences between global spaces and personal spaces.
