Unique file names for emails

SLIM Companion Email Manager generates unique file names based on the file name and the sent date. This way unintentional overwriting of existing emails is prevented.

Note: the email metadata property Conversation (or it's equivalent for eml files) is also extracted. This allows for using the conversation in views to sort or arrange emails.

Note: emails transferred from Outlook via the desktop to SharePoint are named <subject>.msg and replies are named with a sequence number like <subject> (1).msg, <subject> (2).msg etc....

Email metadata such as received date and conversation is not extracted. This makes finding emails archived in SharePoint a time consuming and tedious activity.
