Represents the service that is used in Microsoft SharePoint Foundation for incoming e-mail timer jobs.
Assembly: Microsoft.SharePoint (in Microsoft.SharePoint.dll)
Available in Sandboxed Solutions: No
An incoming e-mail timer job only runs on front-end Web servers on which the service is active. The SPIncomingEmailService class stores the farm-wide settings for incoming e-mail.
To return the parent service of an incoming e-mail service instance, use the inherited Service property of the SPIncomingEmailServiceInstance class. You can also use the GetChild method of the SPPersistedObject class to return the incoming e-mail service, for example: SPFarm.Local.GetChild<SPIncomingEmailService>().
