For more information about the update , click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
This update contains a fix that enables declarative workflows to start automatically when e-mail enabled items are created under the system account.
- To prevent the declarative workflows from impersonating the system account, the workflows will now impersonate the user who created the workflow association.
- This fix applies to e-mailed items only. Declarative workflows will not automatically start on items that are created or modified by the system account but not by using e-mail.
- To enable workflows to start using the impersonation scheme, a network farm administrator must understand the impersonation scheme and its implications. The network farm administrator must enable the workflow with the following command by using the Stsadm.exe command-line tool: stsadm -o setproperty -pn declarativeworkflowautostartonemailenabled -pv true
