The transfer can be done on demand (you select an item and decide where you would like to post it in Groove / SPW) or based on rules (You create a “link” between an Outlook folder and a location (workspace / tool) in Groove/SharePoint Workspace and/or define some publication criteria (ex : if this email contains this text…)).
