is there a possibility to change the default directory/location if you E-Mail a picture into an existing album?
Till now the picture will be placed in the "root" of the album, but I would like to have it e.g. in an "inbox" or a "member" folder.
It would be great if the mail-in directory/location could be maintainable, individually.
THANKS, Markus

Update the subject field by appending the path to the subfolder. To illustrate this take the example of a project called MyAlbum, changing the subject from MyAlbum to MyAlbum/subfolderA/subfolderB will result in images being added to the second level subfolderB within subfolderA.

See Collaboration/Subject in the help pages.

.... but e.g. inside that folder "/Users/lulu/My Albums/Test" (which is inside that entry field) I've got all my images (in subDirs) which are part of my album, so I'm not able to change that folder.
e.g.
/Users/
__lulu/
____My Albums/
______Test/
________set-1/ (including a lot of images)
________set-2/ (including a lot of images)
________set-3/ (including a lot of images)
now I would like to have additional "E-Mail-in inbox" folder e.g.
________inbox/2017/ (should include the mail-in pictures of the actual year)
________inbox/2018/ (should include the mail-in pictures of next year)
Is it possible?

Have you tried making the subject field 'Test/inbox/2017' and/or 'Test/inbox/2018' ?

unfortunately it's not working, because the picture folder is the base-folder from which (and it's sub-folder) jAlbum grabs the images.
If I change the picture folder to a lower lever then jAlbum grabs the images starting from that sub folder.
So jAlbum is working correctly from my perspective.
The only thing which is "missing" is an additional parameter where you can define the mail-in folder.
