Posted By:      Posted Date: September 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi,In our company we have problems with the sharepoints alerts (SP 2007 on windows 2003). No one receives the email alerts.Other mail functionality works correctly.When a user installs an alert he receives an email "You have successfully created an alert for ...".* It was a new installation so it isn't an upgrade problem.* The mail settings in the central administration are OK* Timer job status: Immediate Alerts oppnsps01 Succeeded 100% 1/3/2008 10:35 AM * In the logs i don't find errors* I tried the following commands: NOKstsadm.exe -o setproperty -url http://oppnsps01/sites/library -pn alerts-enabled -pv true stsadm.exe -o setproperty -url http://oppnsps01/sites/library -pn job-immediate-alerts -pv "every 5 minutes" * I've requested and installed the latest  hotfix package: NOK* It's not a permission issue -> i have the same problem and have all rightsCan someone help?Thanks.Gr,Frederik

WSS 3.0 Alerts Not Working For All Sites

I have a fresh WSS3.0 installation in Windows Server 2008.  Alerts aren't working the way they're supposed to.  When I go to create an alert, I get an an e-mail alert that the alert has been created.  However, when I make updates to the task or add announcements, I don't get any alerts at all. Immediate alerts are obviously working, however they don't work after the alert is created. Where should I look?

Email alerts no longer working- please help.

Hello- I recently had a problem applying an SSL certificate to my MOSS 2007 site where I had to rebuild a lot things in order to get the site back up and running.  Now that it is, I can no longer get email alerts to the users.  The odd thing is that when I set up a calendar event, only me (the site administrator) receives an automated message from 'Administrator@xyz.com'???  This tells me that the smtp settings are correct.  I have found severl posts about this but they are all from developers who think that everyone knows how to program and so their answers are not step by step for me to at least try them out?  Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks!

Alerts not working for Lists on FBA / Anonymous access site


Hi Folks,

I have a WSS3.0 site that allows anonymous access as well as using FBA. Another web application is configured to use the same content database but set with windows authentication.

Anonymous users are allowed to post to a few Lists. I am trying to create an alert for an authenticated user (either FBA or Windows). I receive the "You have successfully created an alert" email, but no emails are sent when new items are added. This is the case for all new list items whether they are added by an authenitcated user or an anonymous one.

I am sure the site config is set correctly (but I will double-check). Is there any reason for the behaviour I am experiencing? I'm not at the latest patch level (we are using the June 2009 CU), so perhaps this was an issue that has been resolved in a later patch/update that I ought to apply?

Would appreciate any gems of information anyone might have on the subject before I go away and write my own event handler to send an email!!!


Sharepoint alerts not working on Production


Hi all,

When i am intitating an alert, a mail is sent to the user that alert has been created to this list/library. But when i change anything in the item then no mail is sent to user who is configured to that alert.

Note: I have configured alert for all the changes and immediate alerts.

I have checked the timer job in central admin, they also are present in the timer job definitions.

Do i need to do anything else to get the alert message. Please advice....

Working with SharePoint document libraries

Document libraries are collections of files that you can share with team members on a Web based on Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. For example, you can create a library of common documents for a project, and team members can use their Web browsers to find the files, read them, and make comments. Users with Microsoft Office 2003 can check out and edit the files as if they resided on a local or network drive.

By default, your team Web site comes with a built-in document library named Shared Documents, which is listed on the Quick Launch bar as well as on the Documents and Lists page.

Server side validation of Fileupload control not working



I've tried this method in my code behind to try and validate that the Fileupload control has a file or not. I get the error message the the event "Server Validate" cannot be found. Can anyone tell why? Thanks.

Public Sub CustomValidator1_ServerValidate(ByVal source As Object, ByVal args As System.Web.UI.WebControls.ServerValidateEventArgs) Handles CustomValidator1.ServerValidate

' Get file name

        Dim uploadAvatar As FileUpload = DirectCast(AdvertisementForm.FindControl("uploadAvatar"), FileUpload)

        Dim UploadFileName As String = uploadAvatar.PostedFile.FileName

        If UploadFileName = "" Then
            ' There is no file selected
            args.IsValid = False
            Dim Extension As String = UploadFileName.Substring(UploadFileName.L

Row command working on all rows not selected one?



I have this code that hides a column in a gridview.  (The column houses another nested gridview).

    Protected Sub GridView1_RowCommand(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewCommandEventArgs) Handles GridView1.RowCommand
        If e.CommandName = "Select" Then
            If GridView1.Columns(0).Visible = False Then
                GridView1.Columns(0).Visible = True
                GridView1.Columns(0).Visible = False
            End If
        End If
    End Sub

The trouble is that if I click the select link on one row that action to hide is carried out on all rows.  How can I set this up so that it only hides the row that is selected?

I'm often experiencing that keyboard shortcuts stops working in WebMatrix. This is very annoying as CTRL-S, CTRL-C, CTRL-V, etc. stops working, all of which are heavily used when programming. It's obviously hard to explain how to reproduce this, but I was wondering if someone knows a quick-fix?

New off line application working with sdf file. Need advice


Hey Folks

I am working on a project currently where I need to get data out of a 3rd party vendor's software that uses a .sdf file I looked this up and its a SQL CE file. I was hoping to just link to with with access but thats apparently not going to happen. I need to link to the database extract data from it to a csv file for later use. I also and most important I need to get the data from it and create a report that can be printed while on a customers site that my or may not have web access so I need for this program to be on and off line. I had my webapplication that I have been working on open and was able to bring up the sdf file under the server exploere however I can't seem to get anything out of it when I try to do grid views or detail views errors out.

Can I use one of Visual Studio projects to create this sort of applicaiton if so what would be the best approach. I would love to get an access odbc driver since office is allready installed on the employee's laptop's
