MOSS 2007 Alerts - Multiple Emails Issue

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 09, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I've been experiencing a strange issue with SharePoint alerts that seem to happen randomly.  I've setup a daily alert on a custom list that sends a summary of all changes at 5pm, but on some days I'll receive more than 1 summary email (150+ this past Tuesday).  Each email contains different information and the total number of emails is random along with the number of records in each email.  Some days the summary comes in one email and others it comes in multiple.  This is happening on our production server and I haven't been able to recreate the issue in development.  Does anyone have any thoughts as to how a daily alert would get split up into several emails?We have 1 MOSS 2007 app server, 1 index server and 1 SQL 2005 database server.

Issue With MOSS 2007 Picture library



We have a MOSS 2007 publishing portal. We are currently facing issues with Picture library created with default picture library template.Whenever we have tried to upload an image to the picture library I am getting "acess denied" error message, though I have full permission to the site level as well as to the library level.I have seen the pictures are getting uploaded and in "checked out" state.It does not show the "edit properties" page on upload and does not even allow the owner of the image to edit the properties, gives the same access denied error message.

I have also tried to check in the image files through the "management and content structure", but the images are not getting checked in. Please let me know the root cause of this and how we can resolve this.

Issue with Alerts with multiple Managed MetaData fields?

i'm seeing an issue in SharePoint 2010 with alerts.  If a list has more than 1 Managed MetaData columns, alerts stop working.  If I take it down to only one managed metadata column, they start working again.  Is this a known issue?  I'm seeing it in multiple sites/mulitple users.

Screen resolution issue in MOSS 2007



I have designed the SharePoint landing page with screen resolution of 1024x768. The layout is desined with 3 column. The header images are designed for fixed size for the above resolution only.
It looks good for the users having 1024x768 screen resol. But for few users who have bigger resolution like 1280x720 & wider screens, the header images still shows the same size and thus the body (three column layout) expanded. As a result there is an empty space in the right side of the header.

Is there anyway to get the screen to resize automaticlly for all the users?

Custom Email Alerts using Helpdesk Template in MOSS 2007

Hi All,

I recently installed the Helpdesk template on our SharePoint 2007 Server but I want to find out how to set up alerts so that when a job request has been assigned to person X an email will automatically be sent to that person. Currently you can custimise the Service Request list so that whenever changes are made to it an email can be sent to a designated person, however, what we require is an email being sent to the service request owner.

I presume this will require custom coding but is there third party plug-ins which provide this functionality? As i have never programmed for MOSS i was wondering how much of a task is it to provide this functionality?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,


MOSS 2007 - Propagate changes to multiple sites and lists

We use MOSS 2007 for doc mngmt and maintain individual sites containing lists and libraries for each of our 90+ projects.  All sites are created from a site template and we wish to keep them all identical.  How should I push out changes and updates as business requirements change?  In other words, if we change/update the template, how can I make all the sites and lists look the same?

Is a multiple administrative and service accounts a MUST for MOSS 2007/2010?


Want to set up a MOSS 2007 server farm and was reading up on how to do it. One Msft article insist that I need multiple accounts. My sys admin tells me that I can use one account for everything. This account is a domain account and is a member of the domain admin group, it has dbcreator, public, secadmin, serveradmin, sysadmin roles on the db server.

Any thought on the topic?

Migrating MOSS 2007 installation from one database server to another - configuration database issue


The database server which our sharepoint installation is currently using is going to be shutdown and a new one is going to be put in production.

I read in some post that the configuration database cannot be moved (while the same operation type is documented for content database). Is this correct?

Isn't there a way by which I can modify my current moss installation to define the use of another sql server for configuration (and then later for content) databases?

Any other workaround or procedure?

Thank you!
