FAQ

Q: Is there a way to change a maildrop address?

A: No. Pipeline generates those addresses based on certain internal IDs that allow us to effectively and securely determine which user sent an email. The only thing that can be changed is the 4 four digit block of that address. We can change those to some other 4 digits for each user by request.

Q: What are the most common uses of maildrops?

A: Most of our users program their Unassigned Docs maildrop address into their scanner one time. This works for all scanners that support direct emailing of scanned docs. Other users add maildrop addresses to their email's address book so they can easily look it up by a name such as "Pipeline Maildrop".
