AutoEDMS and the AutoEDMS Workflow Engine support the MAPI and SMTP EMail standards. Through that, AutoEDMS and
the Workflow Engine communicate with Microsoft Outlook and other corporate email systems. AutoEDMS Workflow messages pass through email to notify users, whether or not they are currently using AutoEDMS.
The Workflow Engine though, does not use email to "move" files between users.
All workflow file processes are handled internally by AutoEDMS. Files move from directory to directory as needed, without overloading network bandwidth.
