How to set up incoming external e-mail to create a task (issue)?

I defined incoming and outgoing server, also defined mail address used by server

I want to set up if anybody send an e-mail to, Jira automaticaly create a task (issue) . So far it is possible if some user I created send an e-mail do, Jira create a task.

I can't do it with external e-mails. Also, I can't reply on task to external e-mail.

Does anybody knows how to do it?


Thanks a lot.


Best regards,
