Inbound Email Not Starting SharePoint Workflow

This is a common problem that SharePoint Administrators run into all the time.  The fix is quite easy as well.  Run this stsadm command on the web front ends to see what the property value is:

stsadm -o getproperty -pn declarativeworkflowautostartonemailenabled

If property value is set to no, then run this stsadm command:

stsadm -o setproperty -pn declarativeworkflowautostartonemailenabled -pv true

I recently ran into a situation on a 3 web front end (WFE) farm, where 2 WFE's had the property set to true and 1 WFE had it set to false.  So be sure to check all WFE's.
