There have been few queries from clients asking if it is possible to import work items by e-mail into IBM Rational Team Concert. This is a somewhat complex topic as it isn't currently supported, but there is a potential work around. Let's take a look at the information:
A. There are the following properties in Advanced Properties page of the CCM application in RTC:
Online Help for this says: "A periodic task runs on the server that checks for mail received for work item creation. This property specifies the time in seconds between runs of this task."
B. Here is a brief on this feature from Jazz.net wiki: https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/WorkItemEmailImport
However, as the link says, it's still in experimental stage and not supported, at least as of the RTC 4.0.3 version. This should perhaps be implemented in one of the future releases.
C. However, there has been an RFE on this already and you might want to add a comment here with your additional business justification. The details, along with a business justification should add more weight to this RFE.

I hope this note adds to the links above on this topic.
