Configuring the Activities Feed
Activities Feed emails are sent from Alfresco to all users, summarizing the activities they see in their My Activities dashlet. Users will not see these email unless the Activities Feed is enabled. Emails include activities in all sites they are a member of, and by people they are following. In the Admin Console, you can set the frequency with which these emails are sent, the maximum number of activities they contain, and the maximum age of the activities.
Enabling the Subscription ServiceSubscriptions in the Admin Console allows you to enable or disable the Follow feature for users to follow each other in Share. Alfresco users can keep track of other users activities by choosing to follow them.
Configuring the email client with IMAP
IMAP protocol support allows email applications that support IMAP (including Outlook, Apple Mail, Thunderbird, and so on) to connect to and interact with Alfresco repositories.
