Email a Note to a Case or Other Record

You can send an email to a case or other record. A properly addressed email will be converted to a note, and any attachments uploaded to the record.

Note: Information sent via e-mail is not secure by default, including information in attachments. Sending notes and documents that contain client information via e-mail creates a risk that confidential information could be intercepted and viewed by unauthorized third parties.

NB2: The size limit on emails is 80MB for the email and any attachments.

Format of the Email Address

The address format is

Case example: (where "abc" is the site's abbreviation)

Outreach example: Note: will no longer work for outreach records beginning 2023-02-03).

Grant example:, or, in this example, 123 is the grant Code value, and Title III is the grant Source value. Also note that the space in Title III needed to be replaced by an underscore in the email address.

User example: (where "jsmith" is the user's login name).

As you can see in the example below, prepending "case-" is not required for emailing to a case, but is required for other records.

Project example: (where "789" is the ID number of the project (Effective 2023-02-03).

Copy and Paste Email Addresses from Case Profile:

Users can copy the email address for the case from the Case Summary Pane on the leftside of a case profile page:


LegalServer will process the email, using the email subject line as the subject of the note (prepended with "Email:"). The "From" line of the email will be added to the note body, as will the body of the email.


Attachments to an email will be uploaded as files. The file(s) will appear along with the note created, and in the document folders of the record. As the example illustrates, you are not limited to documents. PDFs, spreadsheets, and wav files from a voice mail system, can be uploaded.

Document Folders

LegalServer automatically creates a "Mail" folder on the record when it processes an email, and an "Attachments" subfolder under "Mail" when attachments are processed.

The ".eml" files shown above are the raw text of the message and any attachments. Those files are periodically deleted.
