What is Confluence Email Gateway?

We noticed a disabled System plug-in in our Confluence 5.1 (download) called Confluence Email Gateway. We enabled it, and now we have this new button in the Create dialog:

Page from email

When you click on that, you get

create page from an email

I would love to use this feature, but maybe it is only in development? There is no help anywhere on the web for how to set it up - we tried setting up a POP email account in the back-end, setting up the scheduled task, etc, but couldn't get it to work.

Does anyone know how to work this?

Actually this plugin is disabled in Confluence 5.1, as Atlassian is still working on it, we hope to see this plugin's documentation soon. :)

Hi Adam,

The Email Gateway is a feature that's still in development, sorry about that. We're working on it but don't currently have a timeline for when it will be shipped. Thanks for the feedback though, it's good to know that people are interested in having the functionality in Confluence!


Any timeline yet?

Aside from timeline (ETA) i am also interested in the intended usage/functionality of the addon feature. What is the idea behind it ... and yes i can assume many things based on the name itself. But we all know what comes from "assumptions " .......

Data --> Information --> Knowledge  ......

Now we have September 2014 and it's still in development?

(just upgraded to 5.5.4 and discovered this disabled Plugin, too)



Hello! Where are we on this, please?


It's two year later. I see this in system add-on's. Do we have documentation for this?

And again 2 years later... will this be a Confluence 7 feature?
